Fonterra appoints new COO

Fonterra has appointed Fraser Whineray to its management team in the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer, starting in early 2020.

Currently the Chief Executive of Mercury NZ, Whineray has also held roles at Credit Suisse, Puhoi Valley Cheese and Carter Holt Harvey.

“Fraser is motivated to contribute to New Zealand’s export success and to drive sustainability, innovation and efficiency in business — three strengths that we believe can create real value. Fraser is also no stranger to the dairy industry, having started his career as a graduate of the New Zealand Dairy Board’s technical training program and spending time at some of our manufacturing sites and in our export markets,” said Miles Hurrell, Fonterra CEO.

Whineray is the Chair of the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council and holds an MBA from the University of Cambridge, a Post Graduate Diploma in Dairy Science & Technology from Massey University and a Bachelor of Chemical & Process Engineering from the University of Canterbury.
