PANNAR SEED announced today the appointment of Ashley Cotterrell as Managing Director. He takes over from Andrew Jarvie, who is retiring from the business after a successful 20-year tenure. Cotterrell will focus mainly on the South African business with Nick Goble, International Director, taking on an expanded responsibility for PANNAR’s African operations outside of South Africa. The appointments are effective from 1 August 2014.
Cotterrell and Goble have been key members of the PANNAR management team for the past 16+ years and have been central to the strong performance of the business over that time.
"I am confident that Ashley will be a real asset to the PANNAR business," commented Jarvie. "His experience, great depth of knowledge of the South African seed market and strong commercial acumen will grow the business and continue to enrich the PANNAR brand.
Cotterrell thanked Jarvie for his many years of dedicated service to PANNAR, adding that he was instrumental in building it into the leading multinational seed business that it is today.
“I am honoured and excited to seize this new opportunity to drive business growth. Flanked by an experienced management team, I look forward to building on the 56-year success of the business to even better service the increasingly sophisticated needs of farmers in Africa into the future,” said Cotterrell.
