Irish dairy cooperative Ornua has announced that John Jordan, its chief executive, will be stepping down from his current role.
Jordan is set to embark on a new endeavour as he assumes the role of chief operating officer within a US-based private equity firm. While his departure from Ornua is anticipated in the near future, he will remain engaged with the board to ensure an effective transition process.
The process of selecting a new chief executive for Ornua is poised to commence immediately. The organisation’s board has designated Donal Buggy, current chief financial officer, as the interim chief executive. In this capacity, Buggy will guide Ornua through the transitional phase.
Ornua cooperative chair Aidan O’Driscoll said: “John Jordan has been an excellent Chief Executive for Ornua over the past five years, and prior to that he held several other key management roles. John has given a huge part of his professional life to Ornua, as he joined us approximately 30 years ago. It has been a privilege to work with him, and on behalf of the Board, the Executive and the rest of the Ornua team, I want to thank John for all his efforts and wish him the very best for the future”.
