Terravesta welcomes two exceptionally bright, motivated and driven individuals to the team this summer.
Jason Kam, our new R&D manager, has a pivotal role in advancing new Miscanthus varieties for sustainable uses and he will be crucial in linking research to future markets.
Chloe Hunter joins us as sales and marketing manager and has already impressed the team with her infectious blue sky thinking and ambition…
Jason Kam, R&D manager
Jason is a scientist with a background steeped in academia. His career has been dedicated to the study of agricultural crops and he’s keen to really make a difference in advancing the bio-economy
He’s specialised in research into farmed crops and among his many scientific accolades is a PhD looking at molecular responses to drought in wheat.
Jason first worked on Miscanthus research in 2016 and is now relishing the opportunity to transfer scientific knowledge into practical uses for Miscanthus which benefit our environment.
“I want to contribute to something that matters and bridging the gap between academia and industry is a long held ambition,” says Jason.
Chloe Hunter, sales and marketing manager
Chloe has an impressive track record for someone who graduated with a degree in business management in 2017.
Her last post was at Cargill where she looked after the trading and merchandising for UK soybean oil and rapeseed oil. Chloe managed supply and demand on imports and actually set the pricing for UK soybean oil on a daily basis.
Before this she was active in management roles within various graduate schemes and held down two jobs while studying business management at University.
“I was involved in marketing and events management at the University and also started a management assistant post at an Enterprise car rental firm, which I went on to complete post-Uni,” says Chloe.
Chloe is highly organised, ambitious and full of inspired ideas. “I’m enjoying the challenge of securing more UK planting to feed growing markets and it’s great to be working for a sustainable business with big ambitions.”
Her role at Terravesta is dedicated to engaging farmers interested in planting Miscanthus and managing our agricultural marketing and events.
