Leading member-owned co-operative, ANM Group has announced plans to expand its market share south of its north east stronghold.
The Group has appointed Lesley Wylie as a Canvasser/Fieldperson covering the area south of Stonehaven towards the central belt. The strategic move demonstrates the Group’s long term commitment to expanding its canvassing operations in the south and throughout Scotland.
Based in Kirriemuir, Lesley comes from a well-known and respected farming family. She has wide experience, both practical and technical, within the agricultural sector, graduating from SAC Aberdeen with a BSC (Honours) in Agriculture before going on to qualify as a chartered accountant. Most recently she was a beef specialist with SAC Consulting and prior to that was a livestock procurement officer with ABP in Perth.
Grant Rogerson, Chief Executive said:
“As a co-operative, ANM’s priority is to deliver value for our members and customers. Our teams provide a range of services to promote and market stock to our extensive customer network, including online bidding systems so that sales are accessible to all, and best prices are achieved. We will continue to ensure that we put customers first, providing a range of options and routes to market and a competitive outlet for their stock. As part of that priority, we are delighted to welcome Lesley, and the experience she brings to the ANM livestock division.”
Lesley Wylie added: “It’s an exciting time to be joining ANM with expansion plans underway to secure new business south of the Group’s traditional customer base. I’m delighted to be part of these ambitious developments and look forward to the challenge of developing a new marketing service around Angus and the central belt.”
Lesley will begin her role with ANM in early September.
