Fonterra CEO Miles Hurrell said since December 2019, Teh-han has been at the helm in an acting capacity, overseeing the coop’s overall Greater China business, including Ingredients, Foodservice, Consumer Brands and China Farms.
“He’s made an impressive contribution. It’s certainly not been a steady-state. Teh-han has been responsible for implementation of our new strategy across the Greater China business, and over the course of this calendar year, has shown outstanding resilience, resourcefulness and empathy in getting his team and our China business through the ongoing challenge of the COVID-19 global pandemic,” Hurrell said.
“Teh-han’s leadership has helped keep us in good shape during a very challenging set of circumstances, and I’m delighted to welcome him formally to the Fonterra Management Team – it’s well deserved.”
Teh-han previously headed up Fonterra’s NZMP Ingredients business for Greater China, South & East Asia, where he embedded sustained improvements in business performance, strong customer relationships and empowering leadership.
Before joining Fonterra in 2015, Teh-han was the CEO of Louis Dreyfus in China, a merchant and processor of agricultural goods. He was also managing director Greater China for Simplot, a food and agribusiness company.
