Family-owned Simpsons Malt Ltd, based in Berwick-upon-Tweed, has announced the appointment of Andrew Hindhaugh to its board of directors this month.
With 33 years’ experience in the agricultural industry, Andrew (pictured) has worked in the agricultural trading division of the business, McCreath Simpson & Prentice (MSP), since 1996.
In his current role as commercial director, he has overall responsibility for all facets of the business, along with maintaining a farmer / client base of his own. This focus will be reflected in his role on the board.
Andrew joins the board at an important time. The last 12 months has seen the malting business continue its investment in on-site infrastructure and report an increase in turnover.
Simpsons Malt managing director, Tim McCreath, said: “We welcome Andrew to the role and look forward to his expert and passionate insight. His main focus will be on the merchanting side of the business, which is such an integral and strategic part of Simpsons Malt Ltd.”
Having studied agriculture, food and marketing at Newcastle University, before beginning his career at HG McCreath (part of Associated British Maltsters) and Dalgety Agriculture, Andrew has a much valued wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise.
Andrew said: “I very much look forward to taking up the position on the board of directors at Simpsons Malt Ltd and understand what needs to be done to continue the success of the company over the years.”
Married with two children, Andrew lives in Alnwick, Northumberland, and enjoys sports and country pursuits in his spare time.
