Foodstuffs NI CEO will be loss to grocery sector


Foodstuffs NI CEO will be loss to grocery sector


The announcement that Foodstuffs North Island Managing Director Murray Jordan will be standing down next year has caught the grocery sector by surprise, says New Zealand Food & Grocery Council Chief Executive Katherine Rich.

“While there will be plenty of time for formal tributes next year, it’s still important to mark this significant announcement.

“Murray Jordan will be a huge loss to the grocery sector.

“The Food & Grocery Council wholeheartedly endorses the comments by the Foodstuffs North Island Board that he has played a stellar role in our industry, particularly leading the very complex merger of the Wellington and Auckland businesses to create Foodstuffs North Island.

“We have no doubt that as one of New Zealand’s great business leaders his next challenges will be exciting ones, but in the meantime there’s no doubt it’s business as usual.

“He will leave his role holding the respect and admiration of the New Zealand supplier community.”

“We are pleased that in true Foodstuffs’ style there’s a long lead-in time to ensure a smooth transition.”

FGC will be making a formal presentation at their Annual General Meeting in May next year to mark Murray Jordan’s contribution to the industry.
