Anna is a native of Gollanfield near Inverness coming from a long-established farming background. She has held several industry related roles since leaving school and has worked at home on the family farm for the past 4 years. Anna will bring hands-on experience in this key position.

Melissa Buchan also steps up into the role of Canvasser/ Fieldsperson for the Buchan area. Melissa has worked at the mart since her student days at Craibstone where she gained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Rural Business Management. She has strong agricultural ties to the area having been born and brought up on the family farm just outside of Fraserburgh. Her experience and industry knowledge make her an ideal candidate for this new role.
