Cargill has appointed Jamie Miller as the company’s new chief financial officer (CFO), who will take on the role on 1 June.
Prior to her new position, Miller was the senior vice president and CFO at General Electric Company (GE) from November 2017 until February 2020. She joined GE in 2008 and has held several positions including president and CEO of GE Transportation.
Miller will succeed David Dines, who is retiring later this year after 29 years with the company. Dines has served as Cargill CFO since December 2018.
“The food system is dynamic and evolving. We know that to feed a growing population in a safe, responsible and sustainable way, we need innovative leaders like Jamie to guide our growth and maintain our strong balance sheet,” said Dave MacLennan, Cargill chairman and CEO.
“Jamie is a resilient and decisive leader with a learning mindset, and she is a champion of leveraging data and digitalisation to deliver business results. I’m confident she has the expertise and leadership approach to continue driving our organisation forward as our CFO.”
The appointment comes less than a month after Cargill named Brian Sikes as its chief operating officer.

A team of researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research has now shown that so-called “superamphiphobic surfaces” can be used to prevent foaming.
