Olam International has announced that Niall FitzGerald has been appointed as the chair of the board of directors for Olam Food Ingredients (OFI) effective Sept 9.

OFI was created in early 2020 following the announcement of the re-organisation of Olam to unlock and maximise its long-term value. OFI intends to seek a primary listing on the premium segment of the London Stock Exchange, and a concurrent secondary listing in Singapore in 1H2022.

FitzGerald worked at Unilever for 37 years including 18 years as an executive board member, during which period he served as finance director, foods director and detergents director until his appointment as chair and CEO in 1996. He held the position of Unilever chair and CEO for eight years until 2004.
