John Moloney, managing director at Glanbia, is to also take a seat on the board of fellow Irish food group Greencore.

Moloney, who became Glanbia MD in 2001, “adds deep sectoral and international experience to the board”, Greencore chairman Gary Kennedy said today (8 February).

The 57-year-old joined Glanbia in 1987. He is already a director at The Irish Dairy Board co-operative and Irish holding company DCC, which owns the Kelkin health food brand and distributes products including Hula Hoops crisps and Filippo Berio olive oil.
