Food and drink innovation specialists Campden BRI have appointed Chris Ikpeme as their new director of finance.

A Cotswolds resident for more than 20 years, Ikpeme joins the Chipping Campden-based firm after spending four years as head of finance at 1&1 Internet Finance in Glocuester.

He also has experience in senior roles in finance and accounting, including spending a decade at DuPont in Gloucester.

Ikpeme will work alongside chief executive Steven Walker in the new role and lead a team of 50 in the finances, governance risk and compliance, facilities, engineering services and IT departments.

He will develop and grow the company's centre of technical excellence which provides research, operational and consultancy services to food and drink companies, including the world's 15 largest food manufacturers.

Campden BRI employs nearly 400 staff in the UK, of which 350 are based at its headquarters in Chipping Campden.

It also has a brewing division in Surrey, a Hungarian subsidiary and an office in South Korea. In 2015 it opened a consumer research centre in Leamington Spa.
