THERE WERE changes at the top of the National Beef association this week, as recently appointed assistant director, Joanne Pugh, departed for a new position with the National Sheep Association, whiles former FWAG consultant Alison McKnight joined as 'interim operations manager' to manage the transition period of the new NBA.
NBA chairman Hamish McBean said: "Joanne has undertaken a tremendous amount of work for NBA through a challenging year which has helped us maintain our position and our profile and we wish Joanne all the very best in her future.
"However with a new era for NBA recently announced and our new board in place, we have chosen to take this opportunity to bring in support to allow us to continue our key work and help steer our developments in the short term.
"This will give us the time and the strategy rightly deserved to recruit a suitable lead figure for the organisation in the coming months.
We are delighted that Alison has joined us and we look forward to continuing and increasing our presence over this time."
Ms McKnight, who is based in the Highlands of Scotland, will be travelling the UK on behalf of NBA for the foreseeable months.
She commented: "The opportunity to work with NBA through this development stage is a challenge I am excited to accept.
There is much to learn and a great deal to achieve to fulfil the expectations of the board and the members of the association and I look forward to working with all members and staff to ensure the association has a positive future."
