Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) said Adrian Isman has accepted the role of chairman of the board of its sister company, Biosev, effective immediately, but he will keep on his roles as head of North America at LDC and chairman of Calyx Agro Ltd.
The agribusiness giant also announced that Patrick Treuer has stepped down as Biosev’s chairman, in order to focus on his responsibilities as LDC’s chief strategy officer, a key position, it stressed, as LDC enters a new phase of growth. He remains a board member of Biosev.
As a result of those changes, LDC said Anthony Tancredi will replace Isman as head of its grains platform. That move is also effective immediately. Tancredi joins LDC’s senior leadership team, reporting to CEO, Ian McIntosh.
A US national, Tancredi built his 30-year career within LDC, holding various key roles over the years, including as CEO of Allenberg Cotton Co. and subsequently Head of LDC’s cotton platform. He more recently served as head of the sugar platform at LDC.
