Manufacture/distribution: Andrew Sesemann, Cox Agri
A businessman, entrepreneur and MBA from The London Business School, Andrew worked for the London Stock Exchange and Danbury Mint before agreeing to join the family business in 1996. In 18 years as Managing Director of Cox Agri Ltd – a company specialising in a wide range of agricultural products including tags and shearing equipment – Andrew developed the company significantly. Under his management, the company restructured, relocated, and diversified its product range, securing a number of exclusive distribution agreements. By the time Andrew sold the business, Cox Agri was a key player in its sector, holding significant UK market share in its areas of operation.
An active member of the BCMS Fellows, Andrew has worked with BCMS on two separate occasions. On Andrew’s behalf, BCMS negotiated the sale of Cox Agri Ltd to the Allflex Group in 2014, and the sale of Cox Orthopaedic Ltd to Mobilis Healthcare Group in 2007. In this video, Andrew shares his first-hand experiences of the M&A process.
