Fonterra has appointed Kate Daly as its managing director, people & culture, effective from September 1.
Fonterra CEO Miles Hurrell said Daly had joined the co-op earlier this year as director HR COO and as a member of the people & culture lead team.
“COO is the engine room of the Co-op with around 12,000 employees in manufacturing, supply chain, innovation, IT, sustainability, technical excellence and global quality and safety.
“Kate has hit the ground running and has already made a difference during an important time as the Co-op has continued to deliver on its strategy at a time of significant global uncertainty.
He said Daly was an experienced people leader and passionate about creating an environment where inclusion and diversity was a key focus.
Daly will report to the CEO and will be a member of the Fonterra Management Team.
