(Posted on 10/01/23)
Cargill has announced that Jamie Miller will step down as Chief Financial Officer to accept an opportunity outside the company. Joanne Knight will serve as Cargill’s acting CFO.
“We are grateful for Jamie’s service to Cargill,” said Brian Sikes, Cargill President and CEO. “Over the last few years, we have further strengthened our business model, expanded our business portfolio, and are well-positioned for long-term success.” Miller will leave Cargill on Jan. 13, 2023.
Sikes added: “Joanne is highly regarded by the Board and Executive Team for her strong track record of leadership and operating results and is well-equipped to take the role of acting CFO. She will step into the role from a position of strength as a seasoned finance leader who has built her career on delivering results through dynamic market cycles. Together, we will grow with customers, strengthen our core and thoughtfully target new markets to ensure we are a reliable, sustainable partner for our customers –today and in the future.”
