DLF Trifolium have appointed Tim Kerridge as their new Managing Director in the UK and Ireland. Tim has been with DLF since January 2000, starting as Business Manager for Scotland before working his way up to Agricultural Sales Director and latterly European Strategy Group Manager.
Tim has been in the industry all his life, starting off on a seed-producing farm before attending agricultural college in Aberdeen. After graduating, he worked for a number of leading seed manufacturers and distributors before joining the UK division of DLF 15 years ago. Thank to this, Tim has built up extensive experience within the industry and, as an existing director, will bring knowledge and continuity to the role.
Commenting on the appointment, DLF Trifolium’s CEO Truels Damsgaard said, “Tim is well known and well respected and has already achieved a great deal, not least managing the design and build of a £3M seed mixing plant outside Edinburgh which opened at the end of 2014.” Amenity Sales and Marketing Manager Derek Smith added, “Tim has now been in the position for a couple of months and is proving himself as an effective leader, helping the amenity side of DLF to focus on the key objectives of delivering quality produce and top-level customer service.”
