Agronomist Lucy Cottingham  has been appointed to the newly created post of marketing and technical manager with BASIS Registration – the charity responsible for training and standards across a range of agricultural and related land-based sectors.

The new role has two key roles. First, to promote the work of BASIS and its activities to a range of stakeholders, including the 10,000 strong membership on the various professional registers. Second, to provide technical expertise to the staff and trustees of BASIS.

Ms Cottingham joins BASIS from Frontier Agriculture where she worked as an agronomist. An Exeter University graduate, she gained a masters degree from Harper Adams and is a member of the BASIS professional register and a FACTS qualified adviser.

service to the BASIS membership.”

Commenting on her appointment, Ms Cottingham said BASIS had provided her with a route to professional qualifications as well as further education which was important when delivering advice to modern farming businesses. She added: “I look forward to the challenges of the new role.”
