Lincolnshire-based potato supplier Branston has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of a new Sales and Marketing Director.

Sharon Affleck, who will be responsible for commercial insights, sales and product development at Branston, has more than 20 years’ experience in fresh produce.

She began her career in technical and account management looking after avocados, apples and pears at Worldwide Fruit and prior to joining Lincoln-based Branston, worked her way through the ranks at fresh food supplier G’s Fresh from commercial manager, through to managing director of G’s Fresh Vegetables.

Ms Affleck: “I’m really excited about my new role at Branston. I was attracted to the company because of its great reputation in the industry and its ambitious plans for growth.

“The business has made some significant investments in technology and factory processes across its three sites and is continuing to evolve – I look forward to helping shape the company through this important next phase and developing even stronger relationships with customers.”
