Management Changes at Skretting Australia

14 September 2017

I wish to inform you that James Rose has resigned his position as Managing Director of Skretting Australia and will formally relinquish this position on 31 December 2017.  James joined Skretting Australia as Business Manager in 1999. Over that time the Australian business has grown strongly and we thank James for his loyal service and strong results delivered to Nutreco.


“I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to lead Skretting Australia and to see our business grow five-fold over my time here. I will leave the business knowing that there is a strong team in place to face future challenges and capture new opportunities” said James. “Being part of the global Skretting team has been inspiring. The shared experiences, global collaboration and great colleagues have made the journey a very satisfying one.”  


I am pleased to announce that Melissa Abbott has accepted the position of General Manager of Skretting Australia effective from 1 October 2017. Melissa joined Skretting Australia in 2004 as Company Accountant and became Financial Controller in 2005. In 2009 she accepted a dual role of Financial Controller & Supply Chain Manager. Melissa has a Bachelor of Commerce and is a Chartered Accountant. In recent years she has completed a management and leadership program at Australian Graduate School of Management and in 2016 participated in the Nutreco Advanced Management Program.  We wish Melissa every success in her new role.


Between now and 31 December, James and Melissa will work together to ensure there is a smooth hand-over at Skretting Australia.
