Richard Mowbray


Commercial Director

 

I joined TH Clements in 2010 and have seen the business develop and grown since then with a great team of dedicated and enthusiastic people.
Originally from a family farming background, following A levels studied farm business management at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

My first role in veg was as Technologist at T.A Smith and Co gaining a good understanding of all aspects of producing veg including agronomy and farming, working my way up through the business in various roles moving from Technical into more commercial roles. After T.A Smith I joined Emmett UK and enjoyed learning different crops and the ways of working of a different business.

 

Outside of work I enjoy running, Playing Hockey, watching live music, cooking, eating out, camping, snowboarding, cycling and spending time with my family.
