Louis Dreyfus Appoints New Chief Financial Officer
Agricultural commodity group Louis Dreyfus Company has announced that it has appointed Patrick Treuer as its new chief financial officer, effective immediately.
He will continue to be a member of the company's senior leadership team and retain his position as the chief strategy officer.
In 2014, Treuer joined LDC’s sister company, Biosev, as the head of strategy. The following year, he was named as the head of strategy of LDC.
