Fonterra announces changes to management team
Fonterra CEO Miles Hurrell has announced changes to his management team.
Mike Cronin has been appointed managing director of co-operative affairs and will lead this new function - which brings together the co-op's current corporate affairs and farm source teams.
"We're fortunate to have broad skills and experience on the FMT (Fonterra Management Team) which gives me the opportunity to streamline the management structure," Hurrell said.
"These two teams already share many of the same objectives and work together very closely on a day-to-day basis, in areas such as sustainability, communications, on-farm practices and more generally, a joint remit in connecting farmers to their co-operative."
Cronin has worked in Fonterra for 17 years and is already a member of the executive leadership team.
The change takes effect immediately.
