ioi logoThe IOI Group, a global leader in the palm oil industry, will have a new chief operating officer and a new v.p. of operations for its Americas group, and a new group sales and marketing director in 2013.

The company has named:

  • Bill Troy as coo of IOI Loders Croklaan Americas
  • Ken Cinzio as v.p. of operations of IOI Loders Croklaan Americas
  • Roald Hulst as the group sales & marketing director for IOI Loders Croklaan

Troy most recently was v.p. of operations, a position he held for the last two years. He is replacing Michael van Sallandt, who was named coo for IOI Loders Croklaan Asia in July.

And Cinzio, who has 30 years of experience in supply chain and manufacturing in both chemical and food industries, will take over as v.p. of operations.

Meanwhile Hulst has served as sales and marketing director for IOI Loders Croklaan Europe since 2010, and will continue to have line responsibility for the European region until a successor is appointed.

The changes come about six months after the company appointed Julian Veitch as its ceo and Vincent Geerts as group cfo in July.

“With a focus on innovation, operational excellence, and first-class service, IOI Loders Croklaan believes that with these changes it can serve its customers’ growing global needs and support them in making their business a success”, says the Group’s CEO
Julian Veitch.
