Chris Moller Appointed Managing Director Of NZMP

Chris Moller has been appointed Managing Director of NZMP, Global Dairy Company Chief Executive Officer Craig Norgate has announced to staff. Mr Moller will also be Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Global Dairy Company.

“Chris’s capabilities are well known and we are fortunate to have someone with his leadership strength, commercial skills and experience in the industry to fill this critical role,” Mr Norgate told staff in a memo this morning.

Mr Norgate said that, under Mr Moller’s leadership, Anchor Products, Kiwi Dairy Products, Food Solutions Group, New Zealand Dairy Ingredients, Transport & Milk Quality and relevant support functions would be merged with the current NZMP organisation.

“This move will create a very significant business in its own right and create the platform for NZMP to drive performance improvements and extract maximum value from the farm-to-customer value chain,” Mr Norgate said.

Mr Moller is the first appointment of five senior executives who will report directly to Mr Norgate. The other four positions will be Managing Director of New Zealand Milk, the Chief Financial Officer, the Director of Corporate Strategy and the Director of Human Resources.
