Hannah Padfield

Regional Network Manager

Hannah, previously our Cambridgeshire county adviser, was promoted to the new role of regional network manager for NFU East in August 2023.

Hannah is already a familiar face to many members, joining the NFU in 2005 as assistant business development manager, after previously working as county development officer for Essex Young Farmers.

She grew up on her parents’ farm in west Essex, near Bishops Stortford, graduating from Reading University in 1993 and obtaining an MSc in rural and regional resources planning from Aberdeen University in 1996. She was business development manager for East Anglia before taking on the county adviser role in 2012.

In her new role, Hannah will manage the NFU’s eight-strong county adviser team and lead NFU growth and engagement strategies across the region.
