Roel van Neerbos will leave as President of FrieslandCampina Food & Beverage on 1 November 2023. With effect from 1 January 2024, this business group will split into five. As of 1 October, the following people will take office as President for these business groups: Dustin Woodward as President Europe, Tuncay Özgüner as President Retail & Americas, Ali Khan as President Middle East, Pakistan & Africa, Corine Tap as President Asia, and Trading will come under the responsibility of President Professional Roger Loo. The Ingedrients and Specialised Nutrition business groups will remain unchanged.

Furthermore, Kemal Cetin, Chief Information Officer, Edward Holtzer, Global Head of M&A and Strategy, and Margrethe Jonkman, Global Director Research Development will leave the Executive Team. David Cutter, currently Chief Supply Chain Officer, will become Chief Supply Chain and R&D Officer. Mireille Einwachter, Chief Sustainability Officer, will join the Executive Board on 1 October 2023.

Jan Derck van Karnebeek, CEO of FrieslandCampina: "FrieslandCampina has an excellent starting position with a rich history, strong reputation, committed employees, relevant 'purpose' and an enormous amount of dairy knowledge and expertise. Moreover, FrieslandCampina has a diverse business, product and customer portfolio, enabling it to spread its risks well and, partly as a result, to offer its member dairy farmers an industry-leading milk price. The company's profitability is under pressure. Therefore, in the coming period, we will take the necessary steps to improve it. The first step is an adjustment of our management structure and the corresponding appointments. I have every confidence that with the renewed leadership team we will fulfil FrieslandCampina's 'purpose' of better food for the world, good income for our farmers, now and in the future."
