The British Pig Executive (BPEX) has appointed Andrew Knowles as its new head of technical as part of a restructure of the organisation.

His appointment is in line with a strategy that involves merging the Knowledge Transfer and Research and Development functions into a single team.

BPEX director Mick Sloyan said Knowles will join the body at a time of tremendous challenges.

Tremendous challenges

“There are tremendous challenges ahead but I’m sure Knowles will rise to them,”​ he said. “Since BPEX was created the industry has changed quite markedly so the organisation has also needed to change. The appointment also ties in with the new strategy for BPEX which will be launched at Pig Fair.”

Knowles said: “I am very excited about the chance to lead a new BPEX technical team. It is an opportunity to harness the extensive knowledge and expertise within the team and to work with colleagues in the allied industry, veterinary profession, and research and supply chains to support levy-payers.”
