LONDON, April 26 Geneva-based sugar merchant
Alvean said on Wednesday it had appointed Gareth Griffiths as
chief executive officer effective May 1.
Griffiths most recently worked at Noble Group where he had
been a member of the executive committee and co-head of the
global energy platform.
Alvean announced earlier this year that CEO Ivo Sarjanovic
would step down until a successor was appointed.
Alvean, a joint venture formed by Cargill and Copersucar in
2014, is one of the world's largest sugar traders.
