The Carbery Group has announced that TJ Sullivan, the current Chairman of Drinagh Co-op, will succeed Peter Fleming as Chairman of Carbery Group.
In addition to this, the group also announced that Paddy Ryan, Chairman of Lisavaird Co-op, has been appointed Vice-Chair of the organisation.
Sullivan joined the Carbery board in 2016, at which time he was also becoming the Vice-Chairman of the Drinagh board.
Having joined the Drinagh board in 2014, he has been its Chairman since 2017.
Drinagh is one of four Irish co-operatives which make up and operate Carbery Group, alongside Bandon, Barryroe, and Lisavaird.
Sullivan, a dairy farmer from West Cork, said he was delighted to be a part of a company with such a presence in his area.
“I am honoured to be appointed Chairman of Carbery Group, which is such an important business for the dairy farmers of West Cork,” he said.
“I am looking forward to working with my fellow board members and the management team, as we continue to diversify and grow the company, for the benefit of our milk suppliers and shareholders.”
Sullivan also acknowledged to out-going Chairman, Peter Fleming, for his contribution as Chairman of Carbery over the past two years.
He highlighted that, during Fleming’s term as Chairman, Carbery had successfully transitioned to a new CEO and continued to make significant progress both nationally and internationally.
