AF Group appoint new CEO
AF Group Limited - the largest agricultural buying group in the UK and independent provider of advice, insight, and services to the farming community - have confirmed that David Horton-Fawkes will join them as their new CEO this winter.

Commenting on the appointment, AF chairman Nigel Savory said, “David is a proven leader with an enviable track record of business growth. Having someone at the helm of our business who not only understands farming but can also help navigate the headwinds the industry is about to face was hugely important to the board. Therefore, we are incredibly excited about the future of AF and the value we can offer to farm businesses across the UK under David’s leadership.

David is currently the chief executive of Gascoyne Estates and his previous roles include Estate Director at Holkham Estate and Lowther Estate, giving him a strong understanding of both large and small farming businesses as well as the increasingly diversified rural economy.


David says, “I am grateful to the Chairman and the Board for giving me the opportunity to lead AF at a time when farming is facing a turbulent future and when all businesses must be alert to change driven by technology, climate and social attitudes. The role is a huge and exciting challenge and I am determined to make a positive difference for AF, its employees and its Members”.
