Rob believes that there are no short-cuts to success, when aiming to bring value to farmers and to bolster the company’s unique position in the market. Rather, achieving these goals requires discipline, close monitoring, investing in the team, and acquiring diversely professional talent for expanding into new areas.
Throughout his career, Rob has been inspired by Mohandas Gandhi’s quote: “be the change you want to see in the world.” He believes that to be an effective leader you need to be authentic, congruent, and to always lead by example.
Rob has published research in plant biochemistry, holding a BSc in Biology, specializing in crop protection, and a Research Doctorate in Biochemistry, both from Nottingham Trent University.
He spends his spare time with his wife and five children, cooking outside and going for walks, as well as cycling and supporting his favorite football club from his native Liverpool.
