Hain Celestial has appointed Javier Idrovo as its new chief financial officer and executive vice president, effective from 2 December.
Idrovo has held several leadership positions, and has an extensive background in corporate finance, strategy, and business development.
Most recently, Idrovo served as chief accounting officer at The Hershey Company, following the roles of senior vice president in both strategy and business development, and finance and planning.
Prior to joining The Hershey Company, Idrovo held the position as chief financial officer and president at Dole Packaged Foods.
Mark Schiller, president and CEO of Hain Celestial, said: “I am excited to welcome Javier to Hain Celestial. He has a strong financial and strategic background and deep industry experience, which will help him make an immediate impact at Hain Celestial.
“He joins us at an ideal time as we accelerate our efforts to simplify our organization, standardize key processes and eliminate inefficient spending.”
Idrovo succeeds James Langrock, who has served as the chief financial officer of the US organic and natural products company for several years. Langrock will remain at the firm until the end of the year to assist with the transition.
“James has been an integral member of our executive team having led our financial team during our transformation,” said Schiller.
Schiller added: “On behalf of our management team and board of directors, I would like to thank him for his many contributions in my onboarding and helping us to build a stronger foundation to pave the way for our successful turnaround.”
