HSBC agri boss starts new career in accounting

The head of agriculture, Steve Ellwood, is leaving
HSBC Bank after 25 years
to build a second career, working closer to the business end of farming, at
accountants Smith
& Williamson

In a major new role, Ellwood will be creating a national agrifood team within
the corporate finance division of Smith & Williamson.

This will be in addition to increasing his involvement with EFFP, of which he
is already vice-chairman, and he is also joining the board of Velcourt Farms.

Pat Tomlinson, formerly of HSBC and currently, Barclays head of agriculture,
is returning to HSBC on Ellwood’s departure.
