Group human resources manager at ForFarmers, Eveline Paternotte, has been appointed to the executive committee of that group, starting January next.
She takes up the place of former director of strategy and organisation, Stijn Steendijk, who has left ForFarmers for Refresco.
Paternotte joined ForFarmers as HR director in May 2020. She has spent the largest part of her career in international HR positions in the food and beverages industry, at PepsiCo and Grolsch. She is also a member of the supervisory board of Koninklijke Grolsch NV.
The executive committee of ForFarmers comprises the executive board members, namely Yoram Knoop (CEO), Roeland Tjebbes (CFO) and Adrie van der Ven (COO), and the other five directors.
The appointment of Paternotte is fully in line with the objective of ForFarmers to enhance internal promotions as well as diversity in management positions, said the company.
The other disciplines that are currently still part of the portfolio of Steendijk will be reallocated to the other directors, it added.
