Fonterra has appointed Teh-Han Chow as interim CEO of its Greater China division in a newly created role, as it aims to solidify its position in the region.

Chow currently serves as president of Fonterra’s dairy ingredients and solutions business NZMP for Greater China and South East Asia.

According to Fonterra’s CEO Miles Hurrell, the creation of the new role to the management team reflects the increasing importance of the China market to the dairy cooperative.

The new role will sit alongside other regional CEO roles including AMENA’s Kelvin Wickham, and APAC’s Judith Swales.

Prior to joining Fonterra in 2015, Chow served as CEO of Louis Dreyfus in China, a merchant and processor of agricultural goods. Chow also held the position of managing director of Simplot’s Greater China division, a food and agribusiness company.

Fonterra’s CEO Miles Hurrell said: “Teh-Han, who is currently our president NZMP for Greater China and South East Asia, has agreed to take on this responsibility in an interim capacity while we work through the recruitment process for a permanent CEO Greater China.

“Teh-Han is a proven food sector executive, with extensive experience leading large organisations across consumer and ingredients businesses. During his time at Fonterra he’s demonstrated his ability to grow a business by putting customers front and centre, which is exactly what our new operating model is about.”
