McCain Foods’ board of directors has unanimously approved the appointment of Max Koeune (pictured above) to the role of President and CEO from November 1st, 2017. He will succeed Dirk Van de Put, who is leaving the business after seven great years in the role of President and CEO to continue his successful career at Mondelēz International. 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.”
