McCain Foods Appoints Max Koeune As New CEO

Potato products manufacturer McCain Foods has announced that it is appointing Max Koeune to the role of president and CEO, effective 1 November 2017.

Koene joined McCain as chief financial officer in 2017, and the company says that he has played a lead role in the development and delivery of a 'very successful global growth and transformation strategy'.

"McCain Foods’ performance has gone from strength to strength in recent years," said Koeune. "I am dedicated to continuing this transformational journey and driving for the results that I know McCain can realise.”

Succession Planning

Koene will succeed Dirk Van de Put, who is leaving the company after seven years in his role as president and CEO.

"Max’s appointment shows first-hand the cultivation of our own talent and the importance of clear succession planning," said Van de Put.

"I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Max for many years, and I know that his deep industry knowledge, expertise, and commitment to the business make him the ideal custodian of this very special business.”

McCain Foods is based in Canada, but employs around 20,000 people around the world, and operates 51 production facilities.
