Published: 12 Feb 2014



Ex-Angus Soft Fruits man one of several high-profile appointments as Capespan continues to re-establish its UK activity. 
 
James Miller is settling into life at Capespan UK as senior account manager after joining from Angus Soft Fruits. 
 
The recruitment follows a number of recent high-profile appointments as Capespan continues to re-establish its activity in the UK.  
 
Miller will be responsible for managing leading UK retail accounts and brand and business development. 
 
Hazel Akehurst, head of sales and marketing, said: "We are delighted James is joining us. He comes with a wealth of experience managing top retail accounts and will give us important extra strength in our growing success, managing both our direct and added value accounts. 
 
"The UK fresh produce industry continues to evolve and Capespan has demonstrated its ability to develop with this. We are now a fully integrated farm to customer supplier and we are finding increasing interest in our new business model." 
 
Capespan underwent a change in shareholding last year, and now has a simplified shareholder structure with Zeder investments acquiring the shares held by exiting Total Produce. 
 
Miller began his new role in January.
