Driffield Show boss lands new job with Great Yorkshire Show

The man in charge of Driffield Show is moving on to a new job after this year’s event.

The CEO of the Driffield Agricultural Society, David Tite, is to become the new Society Manager of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, organisers of the four-day Great Yorkshire Show.

He will take over from current Yorkshire Agricultural Society Manager, Mark Stoddart who is moving on to become the Secretary of the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association.

After this year’s Great Yorkshire Show, David will join CEO Allister Nixon and new Show Director Rachel Coates to ensure the Great Yorkshire Show remains exciting and relevant to visitors and a mainstay in the national events calendar. David will also work closely with Allister on new opportunities and initiatives to drive the Yorkshire Agricultural Society forward.

David has worked at the Driffield Showground for over 30 years after starting off clearing the site as a 13-year-old.

He said: “This is a fantastic next step for me and whilst I’m saddened to leave Driffield this was an opportunity not to be missed and I’m looking forward to joining a great team and working on the Great Yorkshire Show amongst the other events held on the Showground.”

Allister Nixon said: “Mark and David are hugely passionate about the agricultural show industry having both been past National Chairs of the Association of Show and Agricultural Organisations (ASAO). We thank Mark for his passion and commitment to the Yorkshire Agricultural Society and the Great Yorkshire Show over the last 20 years and we are delighted to welcome David with his wealth of show experience from another highly respected agricultural society.

“It is a testament to both Mark and David that they are deeply committed to delivering the Great Yorkshire Show (Tuesday July 9 – Friday July 12) and the Driffield Show (Wednesday July 17) before moving into their new roles.”
