Dairy co-operative Fonterra last week announced the appointment of Sunil Sethi as Managing Director of Fonterra Brands Sri Lanka and Indian Subcontinent. This follows Leon Clement’s recent appointment as Managing Director Fonterra Brands New Zealand.
Sethi, who will start the role in February, joins Fonterra from Kellogg’s where he was Vice President of Sales, Asia Pacific and Sub Sahara Africa.
He has over 28 years of fast moving consumer goods experience working across Asia Pacific and Africa including in leadership roles where Sri Lanka has been one of his priority markets.
Fonterra Managing Director of Asia, Middle East and Africa, Johan Priem, says he is pleased to have someone of Sethi’s experience and ability join the dairy co-operative.
“Fonterra has a strong business in Sri Lanka and Indian Subcontinent region with over 750 local employees, thousands of farmer suppliers and two manufacturing sites. It’s critical that we continue to have a strong and experienced leader heading up our team in the country – particularly as we continue to grow our investment in local dairying infrastructure and capabilities.
