Food business Murray River Organics has appointed Birol Akdogan as managing director and CEO.
“We believe that Birol has the necessary vision and skills to navigate MRO through the next evolution of our business,” said MRG chairman Andrew Monk.
“His experience in tight cost control management in the FMCG market sector and his M&A experience in a large international company combined to give him the skill set to progress MRO’s strategic plans.”
Akdogan has been the interim CEO since January, was formerly the company’s CFO, and has more than 25 years experience working previously as global vice president of finance at Ansell and as CFO at CPI Group.
“I am excited about the challenges that this opportunity affords me and look forward to reshaping the business to deliver value and profitability to shareholders and to see our branded products grow and gain even more recognition on the shelves of our supermarkets and health stores,” Akdogan commented.
