First Milk appoints new chairman

First Milk has announced the appointment of Chris Thomas as non-executive chairman.

 

Mr Thomas will replace Clive Sharpe on the First Milk board, joining August 1.

 

He has previously held senior executive and non-executive positions across a range of businesses including Tulip UK, Adelie Foods, Bakkavor, St. Ivel, PepsiCo and Mars.

 

Experience

 

He was currently non-executive Chairman of G’s Convenience Foods and Street Eats Food Ltd and a non-executive director of Espersen.

Clive Sharpe said: “Since I joined First Milk back in 2016 I have seen the business through a period of major strategic and structural change.

 

“It has been a great pleasure to chair the Board through this period however, due to significant changes to my personal circumstances, as well as other professional commitments, I now feel it is the right time to step down from the role.’’

 

Mr Thomas said: “It is great to be joining First Milk at this exciting time in the food sector.

 

“We face a period of huge change - both in the retail environment and with Brexit on the horizon - and change brings opportunities.

 

“First Milk has well established long-term customer relationships, efficient processing facilities, a stable financial position and a clear strategy for growth and I look forward to working with the business to deliver for its farmer members.”
