Welcome Jack Williams-Ellis!

Jack is joining as Senior Business Development Manager and is a key hire in our expanding Commercial team.

Jack grew up in a rural part of Northern England on a mixed arable and livestock farm, and enjoyed many of the rural pleasures that go with this environment. Through this experience, he became interested in the relationship between food, agriculture, and the climate. During university, he helped his family start the transition to regenerative agriculture with the ultimate goal of maximising the potential natural capital of the land.

Jack has spent the last four years heading up the expansion in North America of British-based agricultural tech company Hummingbird Technologies, which is at the cutting edge of precision agriculture in the specialty crop space. He was working with the conventional and organic open-field growers that supply 90% of the fresh produce to the U.S. and European markets. Jack studied Business and Finance at the London School of Economics and speaks Spanish having lived in Mexico City for the last two years.

In his free time, Jack likes to go kite surfing and horse riding.
