Welcome to the team, Mandy

We’re very excited to welcome Nafferton HR specialist, Mandy Lowthorpe to the team as our new People and Culture Manager.

Mandy has been working with us on a consultancy basis since November and takes on the permanent role to assume responsibility for our people and culture programme that includes staff welfare and support plus recruitment, retention and talent development.

Mandy’s got over 30 years of experience in food companies including Hull-based garlic bread specialist, Riva Foods.  Talking about her new role, she said: “Food manufacture and people are my main driver.  I love the ups and sometimes downs that they can bring and I’m looking forward to developing the Soanes team and to making us one of the best employers in the area.

“The senior management team are totally committed to developing, supporting and being close to their team, which is exciting and rewarding.”

One of Mandy’s first tasks was to present the team with prizes from the annual supplier supported raffle and to present the Employee of the Year award to Team Leader, Snieguole Norvilaite.

Our MD, Nigel Upson said: “Mandy’s enthusiasm for, and commitment to, developing our team is infectious and we’re very looking forward to seeing the difference her appointment will make to the business.”

When she’s not working, Mandy enjoys family outings to concerts, the cinema, restaurants and the theatre and walking her two dogs.
