Fonterra appoints new head of people and culture

by |
New Zealand’s third-largest employer has named its new managing director of people and culture as industry veteran Joanne Fair.

Currently employed as Fonterra’s regional director of ingredients, South East Asia, Fair has close to 20 years’ HR experience – 12 of which have been spent in various roles within the global dairy nutrition company.

“With over a decade of experience in the dairy industry, Jo is an experienced senior human resources and commercial leader, with a strong understanding of how Fonterra operates,” said CEO Theo Spierlings, who Fair will report to directly.

“She has shown agility in working with diverse cultures and customers, and her human resources and commercial experience positions her well to lead a team responsible for delivering our people strategy, and organisational health and engagement,” he added.

Fair’s other HR experience includes a three-year stint in various HR roles with Air New Zealand and a brief period with BNZ as head of organisational development.
