SAO PAULO, Aug 24 (Reuters) - BRF SA, the world’s largest chicken exporter, has appointed Lorival Nogueira Luz as chief financial officer and investor relations director, effective from September 2017, according to a securities filing.
Luz’s formal election as BRF’s statutory director will occur after he effectively joins management from cement maker Votorantim Cimentos, where he has been finance vice president and investor relations officer, according to the filing on Thursday.
BRF said the hiring has already been approved by the company’s board.
Elcio Ito, who has been working as a director, finance and investor relations on an interim capacity alongside with the company’s global chief executive officer Pedro Faria, will remain a member of the management team to facilitate the transition, BRF said.
