Branston boosts senior team with Planning Director promotion

Jo Hill joins the Executive Board

Branston has strengthened its senior management team, having promoted its head of finance and planning into the new role of planning director.  

Jo Hill, who has over 14 years’ experience in finance for food producers, will also sit as a member on the executive board. Having started at Branston as commercial accountant in 2013, she has worked her way up to the new position. 

James Truscott, managing director, said: “We’re thrilled to be promoting Jo for a third time, having seen her progress within finance over the last five years. She has made an outstanding contribution to Branston’s finance team, as well as the wider business. 

“This is a really exciting time for Branston - we’re making significant investments to our sites across the UK, increasing capacity and developing state-of-the-art processing to get the best out of the UK’s potato crop. Jo has developed the skills and knowledge that perfectly suit the new role of planning director, which will be key to the next phase of our development."
