Harper Adams graduate, Henry Bredin, has been appointed general manager of the Tractor Business Unit at Kubota (UK) Ltd.
Henry studied BEng (Hons) Agricultural Engineering from 1997 to 2001, teaching him about mechanical engineering with a specialism in the design and development of agricultural machinery and systems. During the course of his degree, Henry looked into agricultural machines, soil interaction and irrigation and drainage, and advancing technologies along with business skills and practical work. Developing this foundational knowledge has pushed him to continue his professional development with a diploma in professional consulting and an MBA while carving out his place in the industry.
The newly created role will see Henry take responsibility for Kubota’s agricultural and ground care sectors where he will apply a wealth of knowledge that spans from his undergraduate degree. For the last nine years he has been both account director and commercial manager with two high profile fresh produce businesses, following several years working with agricultural and ground care machinery manufacturers.
Henry commented: “Having worked among both the consumer and manufacturing aspects of industry, I am looking forward to bringing my experiences to this new role, and to support further development of the Kubota dealer network. This is an exciting period of expansion for Kubota in the UK.”
