The chief executive of 2 Sisters Food Group, Ronald Kers, is to leave the business, the board of parent company Boparan Holdings Limited (BHL), has announced. Kers has decided to take up a new opportunity, the company said in a statement.
Kers has a notice period of six months and will remain with the business to ensure a smooth handover, with the following transitionary structure already in place: the poultry and pastry operations will continue to report into Kers; BHL president Ranjit Singh will manage the UK poultry & ready meal businesses and chief financial officer Craig Tomkinson will have responsibility for all group functions. All three will report directly to non-executive chairman Richard Pennycook.
The board said it would use this opportunity to review the leadership and structure of the group.
Richard Pennycook said: “The business remains focused and in good shape following the challenges of Covid, Brexit and continuing inflationary pressures. We are well placed to handle a smooth succession process in light of Ronald’s departure later this year.
“I would like to thank Ronald for his commitment over the past five years. He came here with a clear vision of what 2 Sisters should look like and how it should be run, and he has played a pivotal role in moving the business forward in the right direction. On behalf of the Board, we wish him all the very best.”
