Welcome to James Dunn, our new Technical Director for Business Management
Published on 25 July 2019
Based on his own farm in North Lincs, James Dunn is the new Technical Director for Business Management at ADAS. With a background in dairy farming and having managed a dairy unit during the 1990s, he moved more recently into dairy consultancy and business management in a succession of roles with Promar International, the consulting arm of Genus Plc. This began with the delivery of on-farm consultancy but developed into the management of high performing teams and, ultimately, led to the role of Managing Director of the business for the last five years.
During a five year break from consultancy in the late 2000s, James worked in the banking industry as Regional Manager for NFU Mutual Finance and for a period of time, set up and managed his own asset finance brokerage – delivering equipment funding for farmers in the East Midlands.
Outlining his reason for joining the Agriculture and Land Management team at ADAS, James explains:
"The resurgence of ADAS, under the RSK Group, as a brand, and in terms of delivering R&D and a range of consultancy solutions across many different sectors was a key driver in my decision to join the business. I see business management on farms as an area of considerable growth as the agricultural industry embarks on a journey of unprecedented change that will create exciting opportunities for those who embrace the challenge and resist the status quo."
