LONDON, April 26 (Reuters) - 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. (Reporting by Nigel Hunt; editing by Jason Neely)
