DAIRYGOLD Co-op has started the process of appointing a new chief executive to succeed the departed Jerry Henchy.

It has retained MERC Partners to assist it in the recruitment of the new chief to “lead and drive the continued growth of the organisation.”

Applications for the position were invited through advertisements placed in the national media yesterday.

The notices stated that creating the environment within which the organisation can deliver transformation and sustainable growth will be a major challenge for the person appointed.

Reporting to the board, with responsibility for delivering the vision and mission of the organisation at a time of significant change in the industry, will be part of the chief executive’s role.

The person appointed will be “a seasoned executive of exceptional calibre who will bring strategic and dynamic leadership, commercial acumen and proven relationship development skills to the role.”

He or she will have a hands-on management capability to ensure that Dairygold strategically anticipates, leverages and adapts to the major changes in the Irish and international dairy and food markets.

“Candidates will have a proven track record in a senior leadership role where change-management, business development and operational direction were significant constituents.

The notices stated that an attractive remuneration package will be offered to the successful candidate.
