Valeo Foods appoints Group CFO

Valeo Foods Group is happy to announce the appointment of Louis-Francois Gombert as Group CFO. Louis-Francois will succeed Brendan Feeney following his decision to step back from the company.

Louis-Francois, who will take up his new role from summer 2023, brings a wealth of experience to Valeo Foods as a proven finance leader in the international consumer goods space following successful periods at Orangina-Schweppes, Suntory, and most recently Havea Group where he held the CFO role for the last 3 1/2 years and was responsible for a significant business transformation, and a successful exit.

“I’m very excited to join Valeo Foods, and look forward to supporting the ambition of continuing to build a leading European food business with global reach and impact” said Louis-Francois Gombert, Group CFO of Valeo Foods.

Speaking on his departure Brendan said: “As a long term shareholder, I’m immensely proud of Valeo Food’s journey over the last 11 plus years since its formation.  I look forward to working with Louis-Francois on a smooth transition and wish him every success in his new role.”

“We are very excited about working together with Louis-Francois, tapping into his wealth of expertise as a seasoned finance leader, and we wish him every success in his new role. To Brendan, we thank him for his very significant contribution to the business over the last decade where he played a key role in its growth, development and success,” concluded CEO Ronald Kers, who will be taking up the role of CEO.
