A Prophet In His Own Land
Unlike the old adage about prophets, let’s all tip our hats to the very impressive Edmond Scanlon.
In a brilliant interview in The Sunday Times on 18 October 18th the heading read How Edmond Scanlon, son of a local dairy farmer, took Kerry round the world.
It’s no small feat to be chief executive of this global business and for someone still in his 40s. Wishing Edmond continued success from his own land.
Appointed in October 2017
Edmond Scanlon was appointed executive director and group CEO on October 1st 2017.
Regarded as a highly experienced leader in the global food and beverage industry, he spent almost 20 years in senior roles across the group.
“He brings a strategic mindset to drive group performance and growth as well as significant financial and operational expertise.
“Edmond joined Kerry’s graduate development programme in Ireland in 1996. Over his career he has held leadership roles in the group’s flavours and applied health and nutrition businesses as well as heading up the group’s activities in China and the Asia Pacific region,” according to his Kerry Group in-house profile.
