I am delighted that he now has the opportunity to lead ADM Agriculture in its entirety and I am confident he will build on the company’s very successful first few years.”

Mr Lane succeeds Graham Atkinson who is retiring from the role, Mr McGuigan said: “I have not come across a better ‘people’ person in our industry, whether leading teams or engaging with customers. Graham was instrumental in the success of ADM’s destination marketing business globally and I thank him for his exceptional contribution.”
