Fonterra CEO Miles Hurrell has today announced changes to his management team, with Mike Cronin appointed managing director of co-operative affairs.
Cronin 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 which gives me the opportunity to streamline the management structure,” Fonterra CEO Miles 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.”
Mike has worked in Fonterra for 17 years and is already a member of the executive leadership team.
The co-op said he is well-placed to lead the newly formed business unit and very much looking forward to it.
