CBH Group appoints new Chief Financial Officer

The CBH Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Doug Warden as its new Chief Financial Officer. 

Chief Executive Officer Jimmy Wilson said Mr Warden’s previous experience, including fifteen years with Iluka Resources, would contribute valuable expertise to the CBH Group. 

“We are pleased that an individual of Mr Warden’s calibre and experience has agreed to join the CBH team and look forward to his contribution to the Group and growers of Western Australia,” he said. 

“As a co-operative focused on operating the lowest cost possible outbound logistical supply chain for our growers, strong financial management and disciplined capital deployment are essential to delivering this value to our growers.”  

Mr Wilson said the appointment will be effective from 8 October, ensuring a smooth transition with current Chief Financial Officer Ed Kalajzic. 

“Ed’s financial stewardship over the last four years as Chief Financial Officer has placed the CBH business in a strong position and I would like to thank him for his dedication to CBH, and we look forward to this being continued under Doug’s leadership.” 

Mr Warden brings extensive experience in group financial management, strategy, commercial and business development, risk, treasury and investor relations.  He was most recently Chief Financial Officer and Head of Strategy & Planning at Iluka Resources and has held a variety of leadership positions within their group since 2003. 

Previous to this he spent five years with EY as the Senior Manager of Corporate Finance.
