Fresh food supply chain software specialist Linkfresh has appointed Andy Makeham as chief executive officer.

Makeham has previously founded and developed companies including K3 Business Technology Group plc, Sheffield Micro and BEC Group.

Speaking about his appointment, Makeham said: “I have competed with them (Linkfresh) in the past, and they were always tough to beat, so when the CEO opportunity arose, I didn’t have to think twice.

“I am looking forward to working with our fresh food customers to deliver the innovative and relevant software that is increasingly essential as the food industry raises the bar on traceability and transparency.”
