NFU Cymru director set to step down


Mary James, Director of NFU Cymru, is to retire later this year. Mrs James has announced her decision to retire from the organisation in early September.
Fifteen years Mary has worked for NFU Cymru, nine years as Deputy Director before being appointed Director in 2008.
Mary said, “I have worked on behalf of the agricultural industry in Wales for the last 37 years, very largely in the field of agricultural policy. Despite the constant change and challenges the industry has faced during this time, and there have been many, I have always been impressed by the ability of farmers in Wales to rise to these and to adapt. Four decades on, the industry is very different today to when I started my career, but I remain as passionate and as optimistic about its future as I was then. It has been a real privilege to be part of this and to work and represent the industry.”
Stephen James, NFU Cymru President said, “We are indebted for the hard work and long hours the NFU Cymru staff, under Mary’s leadership, put in on behalf of the members. Mary has an unequalled knowledge of the industry and the political structure in Wales. We all wish her well in her retirement.”
The search for a successor and their appointment will now commence but in the meantime, Mary said, “It is business as usual until I step down.”
