(Sharecast News) – Agricultural and specialist merchanting group Wynnstay said on Wednesday that it has appointed Rob Thomas as its new finance director.
Thomas, who succeeds Paul Roberts, will join the company on 2 October as finance director designate and as a director of the board. He will take up the role of FD on 2 January 2024, when Roberts steps down.

Wynnstay said Roberts will remain with the company in a consultancy role for a period thereafter to assist with the year-end audit process and ensure a smooth handover.

It said Thomas has “significant” financial and commercial experience in senior roles, including in the agricultural and the supply chain sectors. He joins from UK-based logistics provider EFS Global Limited, where he was group FD.

Before that, he worked at NWF Group, a specialist distributor of fuel, food and feed, for eight years until 2022.

Chairman Steve Ellwood said: “We are delighted to welcome Rob Thomas to Wynnstay as group finance director, and at the same time to acknowledge Paul Robert’s outstanding contribution during his long tenure with the group.”

He added that Thomas “is an excellent fit, bringing financial and commercial experience of our sector”.
