Professor Steven Walker was appointed Director-General of Campden BRI in 2009.
Steven joined the business in 1987 and was appointed Director of Research in 1995 – a role he held for 10 years. From 2005 until 2009 he was Director of the Division of Cereals and Cereal Processing. Steven has played a major role in both the scientific and commercial aspects of the business, has worked closely with our members, Government and trade bodies on many issues, and has been actively involved in the evaluation of other research organisations in the UK and overseas.
Steven comments, “Industry faces major challenges – both commercial and in terms of broader concerns such as food security and sustainable production. Science and technology offers many solutions, and as a major provider – with well-established networks throughout industry, government, universities and other research organisations – we are ideally placed to be the partner of choice in meeting these challenges, through our focus on the practical application of technical excellence.”
