Roger Kelsey to leave NCB at Christmas
Roger Kelsey, chief executive of National Craft Butchers (NCB), has announced that he will be stepping down from his role at Christmas.
Kelsey took over as CEO in 2010 having previously served on the Executive Council of the National Federation of Meat and Food Traders (NFMFT) as London and South East representative, National President, and Chair of PR and Marketing and its Future Policy committee.
Throughout his roles, Kelsey was responsible for introducing a programme of rationalisation and reform, re-establishing financial probity and better equipping the organisation to support its 21st century members.
Commenting on his departure, Kelsey cited the improvement and expansion of services, the introduction of Primary Authority, greater involvement in craft development and training, modernising communications and developing collaborative relationships such as the Campaign for Local Abattoirs, as some of his successes over the last decade.
When asked, Kelsey said that he has enjoyed the challenges of the past decade but feels it’s time to move on and with no immediate plans.
