Agricultural technology company, Innovation Agri-Tech Group (‘IAG’), is continuing to invest in its exciting growing team with two new appointments this summer. Matt Taylor and David Farley are both joining IAG to hasten projects as it transitions to revenue as Commercial Assistant and Consultant Advisor, respectively.
Matt Taylor joins IAG as a Commercial Assistant with over 20 years of experience under his belt, having managed national accounts for global brands such as PlayStation, Mercedes, and Toshiba. Matt, who is passionate about how tech can be used as a force for good, has been searching for the last 10 years to find a scale-up tech company that is focused on mitigating climate change and improving our environment for future generations without having to reduce choice or availability. Working at IAG allows Matt to combine the skills that he has honed over the last 20 years, alongside working for a business that champions his personal ethos.
As Commercial Assistant, Matt will support the operating board of directors, focus on identifying commercial opportunities and developing excellent relationships with suppliers and partners. This will position him as a crucial member of the team as they take the leap to the next level.
Alongside Matt, David Farley is also joining the IAG team this summer. David is a highly experienced and commercially astute agri-business professional. Having worked at senior levels across all areas of the fresh produce supply chain, he has experienced every stage from field to fork, working within businesses such as Del Monte & Greenvale AP.
Across his extensive career, David has worked with a number of Agri-tech clients, where his experience, knowledge, and network have combined to add considerable value through fresh insight and perspective. Delighted to be joining IAG, David is looking forward to exploring the commercial scale-up opportunities to expedite the IAG model and enable the supply of cost-effective, sustainable exciting, quality produce.
Jaz Singh, CEO Innovation Agri-Tech Group, comments, “It is a key time for the business right now – we’re in the run-up to a big moment in terms of the launch of a new product as well as the business transitioning to revenue. Ensuring we have the right team to take us to the next level is crucial – everyone here at IAG has been working so hard to date, and we want to make sure we build on that and continue to strengthen.
“Having Matt & David join the company is going to be a fantastic boost to our existing team. They both will bring so much valuable experience, and I have every confidence we will continue to develop the business, inviting new talent to the team will enable us to be in the best possible position to launch on a global scale.”
