Managing Director Lewis Ramm started his career at the age of 16 when he became an apprentice with Perkins Engines. He gradually moved into the world of agricultural engineering, before establishing Chichester Farm Machinery at the end of 2008. Since then, the business has gone from strength to strength.
Lewis is responsible for the day to day running of CFM, which includes liaising with customers and suppliers, buying and selling machinery and representing the company at various events and shows throughout the year.
“I’m lucky enough to have a very supportive and fun team, which has me helped drive the business forward and make it what it is today,” said Lewis. “We’re continuing to grow and develop all the time. I now employ 16 people, and three years ago bought Chichester Garden Machinery which has been incorporated into the business. We’re expecting the next few months to be extremely busy and there are exciting times ahead.”
Outside of work, Lewis enjoys spending time with his young family, classic cars and socialising.
Steve Everton is the latest member of staff to join the Chichester Farm Machinery team as the new Sales Manager - but he’s already a familiar face as he worked for the company nine years ago!
With over 30 years’ experience in agricultural sales, he brings a wealth of knowledge with him and is looking forward to reacquainting himself with former customers as well as his old colleagues, most of whom still work for the business.
“I’m really pleased to be back,” said Steve, who enjoys fly fishing and walking his two Collies in his free time. “I’m hoping to spend a lot of time out and about, making contact with our existing customers as well as finding new ones. Ultimately my role is all about selling and I hope to be doing plenty of that over the forthcoming months!”
Steve has always worked in the Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex areas, selling all manner of agricultural equipment from tractors and cultivators through to balers and seed drills.
“As CFM ventures into more agricultural machinery I’ll be using my experience to take this forward,” said Steve. “It’s an exciting time to have come back.”
