South Africa’s largest food manufacturer Tiger Brands said yesterday that it had appointed Noel Doyle as the chief financial officer of the company.

Doyle, who served the company as chief operating officer, replaced Funge Ighodaro, who resigned in April.

Doyle has been the chief operating officer since July 2015 and has also occupied the position of business executive at the Grains and Milling, serving the company as the chief financial officer and head of investor relations.

Doyle’s appointment comes after the company appointed chief executive Lawrence MacDougall in May.

Doyle is expected to start his new role on August 1.

In February, the food producer had to sell its unprofitable Nigerian business to Dangote Industries after it was written off for R2.8 billion.
