Our dedicated management team
There is little doubt TNP would not be in the fortunate position it is today without the dedication and hard work of its management team and staff – a workforce that frequently doubles in size during busy times.
Among those with responsibility for our continued success are:
Andy Holt (Sales and Account Manager)
Andy has been with TNP for six years and is responsible for the management and improvement of sales and customer accounts.
He also gives advice on company goals, objectives and procedures, has an advisory role in relation to the supply chain, and provides customers with technical support.
Andy is especially interested in understanding how different customers work, meeting contacts, gaining new business through hard work, and developing good customer relations.
When not working he enjoys fishing and running.
Julie Eccleston ( Business Development Manager)
Julie’s role is to put TNP’s speciality poultry products before potential customers and, at the same time, explain the company’s excellent farming practices.
She says she likes ‘having a portfolio of products that I genuinely believe are fantastic, and going into a store or seeing a restaurant menu and knowing that I helped put them there.’
She adds: ‘I have a lot of variety in my role which keeps the challenges fresh and exciting.’
Julie has been with the company for ten years. Her recreational interests include running, cooking, her holiday house, children (and all the ferrying around they need), holidays and their planning, and eBay buying and selling.
Sam Smith (Sales Executive)
