Convert will start his new role on August 1 and will be based in the GKC Foods office in Melbourne. As MD, he will oversee operations and sales teams in growing sales volume and expanding Barry Callebaut’s footprint in the region.
“The appointment will steer Barry Callebaut’s further growth in Australia and New Zealand,” the company said in a statement.
