Max Koeune joined McCain Foods as Chief Financial Officer in 2012 and through his leadership, financial management has greatly progressed and he has played a lead role in the development and delivery of a very successful global growth and transformation strategy, organically and through acquisitions.

Max Koeune comments: “McCain Foods’ performance has gone from strength to strength in recent years. I am grateful to Dirk for all he has done, and proud to have worked with him and the Senior Leadership Team to set such a strong purpose, vision and strategy for our business. I am dedicated to continuing this transformational journey and driving for the results that I know McCain can realize.”

Dirk Van de Put says: “As I’ve said so many times before, it really is the McCain people who make this company so great, which is also why I take immense pleasure in handing the baton over to one of our own. Max’s appointment shows first-hand the cultivation of our own talent and the importance of clear succession planning. I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Max for many years, and I know that his deep industry knowledge, expertise, and commitment to the business make him the ideal custodian of this very special business.”
