From the 1st of November, Yves Desjardins has taken on the role of head of sales at Lemken, joining the company’s executive management simultaneously.
He takes over sales from managing director Anthony van der Ley, who has led the development for the past two years but wants to focus on his responsibilities as CEO. Mr Desjardins has worked at Lemken for eight years as an export manager.
Mr Desjardins brings a degree in agricultural sciences from what is now UniLasalle in Beauvais and has been responsible for national and international sales, trade partner relations, market analyses and sales in various companies.
Lemken currently has an export ratio of 81% and this is an area where the new head of sales is well-qualified. He is seen as a highly valued member of the team who is willing to take on future challenges in the agricultural industry.
