Carbery Group, the West Cork-based international food ingredients, flavours and cheese business, has announced the appointment of Jason Hawkins as the new Chief Executive and a Director of the company. He will take over from Dan MacSweeney when he retires after 25 years as CEO at the end of December 2017.

DFA is a leading milk marketing co-operative and dairy food processor with substantial cheese, ingredients and flavours businesses.

Prior to joining DFA, Jason had a long and distinguished career with the Kerry Group.  He joined Kerry Group’s Graduate Programme as an accountant in 1999 after graduating with a business degree from the Institute of Technology Tralee. The majority of Jason’s Kerry career has been spent in the United States in several leadership positions where he was responsible for the creation of the vision, strategy and overall growth for several of Kerry’s businesses in North America.

During his career with Kerry, including his most recent position as President of Beverages, Brands and Taste for North America, Jason successfully led and navigated the business to significant growth and profitability, obtaining and expanding Kerry’s leadership position within key markets and channels.

Jason Hawkins says: “I have, for a long time, admired Carbery as an organisation and am very much looking forward to further developing the successful business which the excellent team at Carbery Group has built.”

Peter Fleming, Chairman of Carbery Group, says: “Jason’s background with Kerry’s global ingredients business combined with his experience at Dairy Farmers of America make him very well suited to build on the strong foundations that are in place at Carbery. I am confident that under his leadership the business will continue to grow and develop in the years ahead, delivering for the milk suppliers of West Cork.”
