Food And Drink Federation Appoints Munday As Chief Scientific Officer
The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) – the voice of UK food and drink– has appointed Helen Munday as Chief Scientific Officer. Helen will take up her new role in early summer 2016.
Helen has a wealth of experience in the food and drink industry, having held senior European and global roles in companies such as Mars and Coca-Cola over her career. From 2007 - 2010 she worked as Director of Food Safety and Science for FDF. Most recently Helen has been Lead Technologist in AgriFood for Innovate UK.
FDF Director General Ian Wright CBE said: “I am thrilled that Helen is joining the team here at FDF. It has never been more important for industry action, public debate and policy-making to be informed by robust science. As the newest member of FDF’s Leadership Team, Helen will help us to deliver more for the UK’s food and drink industry which is a vital national asset.”
Helen Munday said: "It's a real privilege to be joining FDF in the role of Chief Scientific Officer. I deeply believe that growth in the food and drink sector needs to be based on the application of sound science as well as innovations driven by so many factors that shape the way we live today. Whilst the sector faces many challenges I'm looking forward with great enthusiasm to working with the industry partners and stakeholders that I have always so much enjoyed working with."
To ensure the continued smooth development of the new Kotkamills Consumer Boards business unit, Pirjo Eteläinen has been appointed Director, Consumer Boards. She takes responsibility for the operating result of the business unit and will continue to develop the sales and support network ready for the launch of the new board machine at the end of June this year.
In addition, David Ingham has been appointed Global Sales Director, Consumer Boards, and will take responsibility for the sales organisation and sales overall.
Both appointments are made with immediate effect.
Christian Höglund, previously Director, Consumer Boards Business Unit, has left the company to pursue other opportunities.
Domino CEO Joins Brother Executive Management Team
Nigel Bond, CEO of Domino Printing Sciences, has become a member of the Brother Executive Management Team.
Following Brother Industries' acquisition of the coding & marking and digital printing company on 11th June, 2015, the appointment reflects the importance the Japanese multinational company places on Domino as a growth platform in the portfolio of its businesses.
As the first non-Japanese member to join the Executive Management Board, Nigel's experience and knowledge will provide an invaluable contribution to Brother's senior team in the transformation activities the company plans to undertake in the coming financial year.
"It is an honour to be invited to be a part of the Executive Management Team," says Nigel. "Domino has a big role to play in Brother's growth projections. For this reason, in FY16/17 Brother will be investing significantly in Domino to help achieve long term growth targets."
Nigel still maintains the role of CEO for Domino Printing Sciences and will continue to lead the company through this exciting new phase for the Cambridge-based business.
