Ripon Farm Services appoints marketing manager


A leading supplier of agricultural machinery has appointed a marketing manager.

Sophie Allanby joins Ripon Farm Services (RFS) at an exciting stage in the development of the business.

She grew up on an arable farm just outside Malton and was actively involved in her local Young Farmers Club.

She holds an Honors Bachelor of Commerce degree from York St John’s University and has worked in the marketing world for ten years in various roles including at the Castle Howard Estate as Communications Manager from 2018-2021.

She said: “This is a hugely exciting opportunity for me. RFS is one of the most respected companies in the UK agriculture industry and I am proud to join a close-knit and talented team.

“It will be my responsibility to develop and implement an aggressive marketing strategy that builds on the substantial progress Ripon Farm Services has made over the past two years.”

Richard Simpson, Commercial Director of RFS, said: “We are delighted to welcome Sophie to our team. We look forward to his input as we develop our marketing strategy and grow our business.

“She comes to RFS at an important time in our development, as we seek to build on our past successes, improve our relationships with old and new customers and increase our visibility in the region.”

Ripon Farm Services is one of the largest John Deere dealerships in the UK with 11 depots, along with three Ifor Williams trailer dealerships and a new vehicle paint and body shop facility.

Last year the company launched Europe’s largest combine harvester at the Great Yorkshire Show and earlier this year held a hugely successful two-day agricultural machinery show in Harrogate.
