The state board has appointed a new Chief Executive.
Just days after the Bord Bia Origin Green awards Bord Bia has announced the appointment of a new chief Executive. Tara McCarthy will succeed Aidan Cotter as Chief Executive when the latter retires in January 2017.
McCarthy has a long history with Bord Bia having worked with the organisation for over 20 years.
Chairman of Bord Bia, Michael Carey said;
‘Tara has clearly demonstrated her leadership capabilities during a 20-year career in the agri-food industry. The competition for the role was very intense and throughout the robust process, the panel was hugely impressed by the high calibre of candidates.’
McCarthy herself said she was looking forward to working with farmers, food manufacturers and producers to reach the total exports target of €19 billion, as set out by FoodWise 2025.
