CBH Group announces senior management team changes

The CBH Group today announces changes to its senior management team including the appointment of a Chief Information Officer to the CBH Lead Team.

Chief Financial Officer Doug Warden has provided his resignation to pursue another employment opportunity and will leave CBH at the end August.

Mr Warden’s resignation has provided CBH with an opportunity to consider the structure of the Lead Team including the responsibilities of the Chief Financial Officer which had consisted of finance, strategy, commercial development, and information technology.

Given the growing importance CBH places on data, analytics and systems, Tamour Azam will join the CBH Lead Team as Chief Information Officer and report to the Chief Executive Officer. This role previously reported to the Chief Financial Officer.

Chief Project Delivery Officer Pieter Vermeulen has also announced his resignation and will leave CBH by the end of October 2021.

The recruitment process for a new Chief Financial Officer, which will retain finance, strategy, and commercial development responsibilities, and Chief Project Delivery Officer will commence soon.

CBH Acting Chief Executive Officer Ben Macnamara said he would like to thank Mr Warden and Mr Vermeulen for their work for the co-operative during their tenures.

“Doug has been with CBH for almost three years leading the Finance and IT teams, and I would like to thank Doug for his contribution to CBH during his time with us, it has been great to have him as part of the team,” Mr Macnamara said.

“During Pieter’s time, the Project Delivery team has delivered 2.7 million tonnes of new storage to the CBH network, 80 throughput enhancements and many sustaining capital projects.

“This is no mean feat and the team should be proud of what they have delivered under Pieter’s guidance.

“I would also like to congratulate Tam on his appointment to the Lead Team. We are excited to see this role elevated within the co-operative, and I welcome him to the team.”
