Fresh Del Monte has offered additional information about Mary Ann Cloyd, a recently elected independent director to its board of directors.
According to the group, Cloyd’s expertise further strengthens the skillset of its board of directors, bringing more than 39 years of experience in public accounting/consulting firms in both client service and operational roles, serving companies across a variety of industries, including retail, distribution, manufacturing and energy.
An experienced director, Cloyd is well versed in corporate governance matters, including audit, risk, human resources and compensation, Del Monte said.
“We work in an increasingly global economy,” said Mohammad Abu-Ghazaleh, chairman and chief executive officer. “The more we can do to add depth and dimension to our board, the better equipped we are to serve clients and customers from all walks of life. To support this philosophy, we will continue to launch a variety of initiatives to promote diversity across all levels of the organisation.”
Cloyd was elected to the board of directors at the annual shareholders meeting in May as an independent director.
She chairs the board’s Audit Committee and is a member of the Governance Committee.
