Pierre-André Terisse, the recently-appointed CFO at Danone, has been named on the food giant’s executive committee.

Terisse joined Danone from cigar maker Altadis earlier this year after replacing Antoine Giscard d’Estaing, who had decided to resign from the company.

Terisse, 41, spent eleven years at Danone after joining the French dairy giant in 1992. In 2003, he joined Altadis as treasury director.
