D’Orsogna announces new Managing Director

D’Orsogna has appointed Jason Craig as its new Managing Director.

The smallgoods producer describes Mr Craig as an internationally experienced and recognised agribusiness leader with more than 25 years operating in all parts of the food supply chain.

CBH Marketing and Trading, which Mr Craig has headed up since 2012, is promoted as Australia’s largest grain exporter, with an annual turnover in excess of $2.5 billion via its activities in grain accumulation, trading, financing, shipping and distribution.

Announcing Mr Craig’s appointment, D’Orsogna Chairman Tony Iannello says the transition will be effectively seamless.

“Current Managing Director Greig Smith, along with existing senior management, will work closely with Jason from when he joins the company in early November until commencing as Managing Director on January 1, 2024,” he says.

“Greig has decided to pursue new challenges, having led D’Orsogna for six years and we appreciate his ongoing commitment to enable a smooth transition.

“During his tenure he successfully managed significant challenges, including workplace and supply issues surrounding the 2020 incursion of Covid-19 and developing and expanding our state-of-the-art facility which opened in Merrifield, Victoria in 2019.

“More recently, Greig restructured critical transport and cold storage arrangements after changes in that industry space, so on behalf of the Board, management and staff of D’Orsogna, I thank him for his commitment and wish him all the best.”

Mr Iannello describes Mr Craig as a dynamic business leader, experienced in leading a large and complex business in tandem with a quality, outcome driven management team.

“D’Orsogna’s Board saw these critical qualities as the right match for where our company is positioned at this time and where we see it moving in the future,” he says.

“Jason has a proven ability to shape organisational strategy and deliver results in highly competitive business environments and we believe those skills will further enhance the already strong relationships D’Orsogna has with our customers, consumers, and suppliers.”
