Fuels Team Members

Barry Crossan

Head of Fuels & Energy Management

I have AF blood running through my veins! I am committed to ensuring that your buying group continues to fully support your farm business.

Of my 37 years of experience working in the agricultural supply chain, 22 years of this is with AF Group. I have enjoyed many roles including my current positions as Company Secretary and Head of Fuels and Energy Management.

Understanding how your AF buying group works on all levels means I can focus my efforts both strategically but also at the level of detail needed to ensure smooth delivery of Fuels and Energy procurement. Delivering satisfactory prompt resolutions to queries and problems in these complex industries is a challenge that I relish.

The future of oil is changing and I’m looking forward to offering and procuring more environmentally friendly products.

Prior to AF, I have worked in the oil business for 13 years, gaining a wealth of experience in the industry. I’m passionate about what I do and pride myself in problem solving: through wars, snowstorms & lockdowns.

Fay Hallett

Fuels Specialist

It is great to work in farming, the industry that I have a genuine interest and passion for.

I have always been interested in farming, particularly livestock. I completed veterinary studies, particularly within equine. I have always had my horses to keep me busy and as I grew up, the phase never left. I have worked in a mixture of roles but decided to join AF in 2021. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning a new set of skills and knowledge around an industry I share genuine interest and passion in. I look forward to learning more and building a new career around my role here.


Helen Thurtle

Fuels Procurement Manager

To AF, I bring in-depth knowledge of the fuel supply chain and markets from wholesale, purchasing to deliveries.

I joined AF in early 2021 bringing 22 years of experience working in both upstream and downstream sectors of the fuel industry in both domestic and commercial sectors. My procurement and account management experience allows me to ensure our members receive not just competitive pricing but also the best possible service all round.
