THE British Limousin Soc-iety has announced the appointment of Will Ketley as the new breed secretary.
Will has 20 years of experience working in the agricultural industry, from grassroots to the business sector. He moves from his role as managing director of an investment company, with a portfolio of differing businesses from agriculture, engineering to property. He has a strong business acumen and has led teams to deliver clear strategic goals with a hands-on approach.
After growing up in rural Essex, Will went on to study a degree in Agriculture with Business at Writtle University and has previously sat on the National Farmers’ Union Livestock Board.
Will has a wide range of practical agricultural experience, including running the family farm, where the prefix of Picketts was established in the early 1980s by his father and grandfather, and where Limousin genetics are still at the forefront of the herd.
Will is very excited to settle into the role as the new breed secretary. He says he is “looking forward to using these skills to take the Limousin Society forward from strength to strength whilst harnessing the talent that is already within the team”.
Will commented: “I am excited by the opportunity to fulfil the aspirations and potential of the Limousin breed and its members. I look forward to meeting as many of the members face to face once life resumes to normality.”
The British Limousin Society is very pleased to welcome Will to the team. Will brings a wealth of skills, experience, and enthusiasm which will help to take the society on to the next exciting chapter.
