From January 2020
In our centenary year, 2019, we were busy
planning how we can continue to best meet
the needs of members and other clients. We
have now implemented a new structure to
achieve this. With Chris Huscroft assuming
the role of chief executive (as announced in
December), we are delighted to welcome
Peter Headridge who, in succeeding Chris as
chief operating officer, will lead our science
and technology work that lies at the heart of
all we do for clients.
Peter started his career at Kellogg’s as quality
coordinator of food safety, progressing to
vice president of R&D, quality, nutrition and regulatory, as well as director EMEA and, in the US as
director of R&D.
Most recently he was managing director at Peak Food Solutions, from where he joins us.
He will be supported by three associate directors - each leading a major business unit. Barbara Lunnon joins
associate director consulting (science). Barbara brings a wealth of industry experience with companies such
and CSM, and will be responsible for our science-led consultancy activities. Emma Hanby has been appointed
director consulting (technology), drawing on her extensive experience in both technical and commercial roles
Campden BRI. As associate director analytical services, Nick Byrd brings 30 years’ experience of working
and clients, to lead and deliver integrated analytical and testing services that meets their diverse
needs across all sectors.
Our research, skills and knowledge base that under-pins all these activities will be overseen by Craig
Leadley in the newly
created role of head of strategic knowledge development. Craig’s team will focus on extracting maximum value
both members and Campden BRI - from our member-funded research programme and collaborative relationships
government, the research community and funding bodies.
They all look forward to meeting you and working closely with you in their new roles as the business
continues to evolve.
