The a2 Milk Company has named Australian businessman David Bortolussi as its new chief executive after a six-month global search.
Mr Bortolussi, who will assume the role early next year, is currently the group president for international innerwear at Hanes Brands and is a former chief strategy officer at Foster’s Group.
Before his time at Foster’s Group, where he was responsible for corporate strategy and performance improvement, Mr Bortolussi held senior consulting roles at PwC and McKinsey and Company.
“Following an extensive global search, the board is delighted to have secured David for this role. David has demonstrated significant skill in guiding businesses through periods of significant growth whilst also effectively managing the changes that expansion frequently requires,” said a2 chairman David Hearn.
