Swiss-Irish bakery firm Aryzta has announced that Kevin Toland will begin his role as the company's new chief executive on 12 September 2017.
The group first announced Toland's appointment in May of this year. He joins the bakery firm from DAA, which operates Ireland's Dublin and Cork airports, and previously worked at dairy firm Glanbia, along with a number of other senior FMCG roles.
Meanwhile, Aryzta has also announced the addition of Juergen B. Steinemann to its board as an independent non-executive director, subject to shareholder approval.
Steinmann previously served as CEO of chocolate manufacturer Barry Callebaut, and has held a number of other senior positions in the food sector. He is currently a member of the supervisory board of Metro, and a member of the board of directors of Barry Callebaut and Lonza.
“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Juergen as non-executive director," said Gary McCann, chairman of Aryzta.
"With his appointment we have further diversified and deepened the skills, background and experience of our board. Juergen has substantial experience in the food B2B sector and will provide valuable insight to the board.”
