Jim Russell – Part Time Appointment


It is with great pleasure to announce that Jim Russell will join Nene Potatoes on Monday 5th September on a part time basis.  Jim will strengthen our non-member trading activities from his grower contacts and offer new customer opportunities, particularly in the processing sector.

Many of you will know Jim from his previous roles and more than 30 years of experience at Abbey Produce, QV Foods and Spearhead.  Jim is semi retired and will work approximately 2 days a week for Nene, from his car and his home near Wisbech, this being flexible with the seasonal opportunities and demand.  Jim will create the opportunities, and will then hand this over to Paul, Simon and the Nene team, to dovetail into our existing business framework.

We wish Jim the best of luck in reigniting his previous grower and customer relationships for the benefit of Nene Members and our customers.
