Dungannon-based Dunbia has appointed a former Moy Park director to its newly created role of deputy chief executive.
Tony O’Neill will take up the position on 1 September 2014 and will hold responsibility for the meat processor’s UK and Ireland business.
O’Neill said: “I am leaving a business accustomed to change and growth to join another equally dynamic business and I wish my former colleagues at Moy Park every continued success.”
Jim Dobson, Dunbia chief executive, added: “This appointment marks a significant advancement for our company’s growth, particularly as we continue to fully integrate a rapidly expanding business.
“Tony’s experience of managing growth and change should enable Dunbia to extract maximum value from our component UK and Ireland business units at this challenging time for the red meat sector.”
O’Neill was convenience foods and new business director at Moy Park from 2010, following the company’s acquisition of O’Kane.
