Moy Park man to join Dunbia

Meat company Dunbia has announced it will appoint a new group deputy chief executive, Tony O'Neill from Moy Park.

O'Neill will be in charge of the company’s UK and Ireland business as of 1 September, in the newly created role.

Dunbia Group chief executive Jim Dobson, who made the announcement, said: “This appointment marks a significant advancement for our company’s growth, particularly as we continue to fully integrate a rapidly expanding business. Tony brings enormous experience of large company management and corporate governance. His professionalism will be utilised fully as will his knowledge and contacts to our wider management team, adding a new level of resource to our operational effectiveness.”

O'Neill joins the business from Northern Ireland poultry processor Moy Park, but said he would continue to engage with the company through his role as chairman at the Agri-Food Strategy Board: “I am leaving a business accustomed to change and growth to join another equally dynamic business and I wish my former colleagues at Moy Park every continued success. I will be continuing to engage with Moy Park and the wider food industry through my chairmanship of the Agri-Food Strategy Board (AFSB) and in my NIFDA role as we work with the executive to implement the recommendations identified in the AFSB ‘Going for Growth’ action plan and enable Northern Ireland’s agri-food industry to exploit its full potential.”
