Ruth Hughes joined Linnaeus in 2016 and is responsible for ensuring our clients receive unparalleled, efficient and tailored diagnostic services from our water, food, plant, soil and air technicians.
The world-class laboratory also delivers contract research, so clients range from vineyards and major food producers to schools and local government, giving Ruth plenty of variety and scope for identifying new opportunities and building strong relationships.
“I love challenges and the process of assessing the current landscape and then executing strategies for growth,” says Ruth.
Ruth’s career in the UK encompassed a variety of roles that gave her a strong grounding in client service and relationship management, including working for a high-end shoe retailer, the department store John Lewis, and BMW. Outside of work, Ruth is kept (very) busy with her three children.
