The a2 Milk Company Announces MD and CEO Succession

The Board of Directors of The a2 Milk Company Limited is very pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Jayne Hrdlicka to the role of Managing Director and CEO, to succeed Geoffrey Babidge who will retire from his role, during calendar 2018. Geoff’s retirement is part of a carefully planned transition programme which the Board has put in place together with Geoff to create an orderly and successful handover which is designed to ensure that the current momentum of the business continues.

Jayne is an outstanding senior executive with particular strengths highly relevant to a2MC’s next growth phase. These include her extensive experience in strategy formulation and execution, insight into customer-centricity and innovation and importantly an understanding of operating in a disruptive environment.

Given her current commitments, it is expected that Jayne will commence her role around the start of the 2019 financial year. Geoff is highly supportive of Jayne’s appointment and has agreed to be available until December 2018 to assist the transition.

As Managing Director and CEO, Jayne will assume leadership of the a2MC senior executive team, which has a strong skill set and experience in fast-moving consumer goods across all key markets in which a2MC operates. Jayne’s appointment follows the reorganisation of responsibilities within the a2MC senior team during 2017 to further support the ongoing development of its significant businesses in Asia Pacific, including the appointment of Peter Nathan as Chief Executive Asia Pacific. Key members of the executive team have been engaged in the succession planning and recruitment process undertaken by the Board and look forward to welcoming Jayne in her new role.
