Greg Campbell, Chief Executive of Ravensdown has notified the Board that he will be leaving the role and has given six months’ notice.
This gives the Board time to search for a suitable replacement for Greg who has been CEO of the farmer-owned co-operative for eight years.
Greg explained that the time felt right to move on, but there was no specific role lined up. “I’m a director on several boards and that seems enough at this point. I’ve been a CEO for different organisations now continuously for over two decades so it will be good to pause, take stock and see what life holds in store.”
His pride in the Ravensdown team and all it has accomplished – especially coming through for the country as an essential service during Covid-19 – is undimmed. “I’ll be leaving a co-operative that is in good heart and in a strong position to help shareholders with their goals relating to food production and environmental impact.”
Chair John Henderson will be leading the Board’s selection committee as Greg is scheduled to work until the end of May which is the current financial year. “Greg’s accomplishments have been exceptional and, on behalf of all stakeholders, I want to thank him for his leadership.”
The co-operative has had a strong first-half to its financial year added John. “We will now follow the process to ensure a smooth transition and appreciate the staff and management’s efforts as we select an appropriate successor.”
