Swiss grain merchant Ameropa said on Monday it has appointed William Dujardin, a longstanding manager at Bunge, as its next chief executive.

Dujardin will take up the post on Jan. 8, Ameropa said in a statement.

He will succeed Andreas Zivy, the group’s chairman who took on the CEO role earlier this year when Jan Kadanik left the firm.

Dujardin, a 45-year-old French national, has spent the past 14 years at U.S-based Bunge, one of the world’s largest agribusiness groups. He was most recently vice president, north and central Europe.

Zivy, a member of the family that founded Ameropa, will remain board chairman.

Ameropa is a major supplier in international grain markets, sourcing much of its product from Europe and Black Sea countries. It also produces and distributes fertilisers.
