Viterra is pleased to announce that Phil Hughes has been appointed Executive Manager for Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).
The appointment comes after Tim Krause, Executive Director ANZ, announced his retirement after 13 years with the company, and a successful career in agriculture.
Under Tim’s management, Viterra developed into one of the leading agriculture networks across the ANZ region, and is the leading service provider of its kind in South Australia.
“Tim’s leadership skills have been a great asset not only to our business, but to the development of the Australian agriculture industry as a whole. I’d like to thank him for his contribution to our business, in particular his commitment to supporting producers across the region and his emphasis on demonstrating safety leadership and genuine care for our colleagues,” said David Mattiske, Viterra’s Chief Executive Officer.
Phil Hughes, previously General Manager Trading ANZ at Viterra, has been working for Viterra for 15 years and has led our marketing activities across the region since 2014. Prior to this, Phil also spent time at Viterra’s office in Singapore, managing our Asian marketing operations.
“I am very pleased that Phil will step into the position of Executive Manager Australia and New Zealand. I am confident that he will be able to continue to develop our business across the region.”
At Viterra, we believe in the power of connection. Our world-leading, fully integrated agriculture network connects producers to consumers with sustainable, traceable and quality-controlled agricultural products. With more than 17,500 talented employees operating in 37 countries, our strategic network of storage, processing and transport assets enable us to offer innovative solutions and open pathways for our customers, creating successful partnerships that last.
