Fertiliser company Itafos (IFOS) has appointed G David Delaney to the position of CEO.
David has been a member of Itafos’ Board of Directors since February 2017, and will continue in that position as he begins his tenure as CEO. He will take over from the company’s prior CEO, Dr Mhamed Ibnabdeljalil, who had served in that role since May 2019.
David’s career has spanned more than 30 years, during which he has held various leadership roles within the fertiliser and agriculture industries. Most recently, he was the Chief Commercial Officer at Farmer’s Business Network, an independent network of advanced North American farmers.
Before that, David served as a Strategic Advisor for Paine Schwarts Partners, known at the time as Paine & Partners. The company is a private equity firm which has a focus on large and developing food and agricultural sectors.
Prior to that, David was the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan. During his time there, he oversaw operations across PotashCorp’s business segments.
David also served as President of Sales and Marketing while at PotashCorp, and led the centralisation of the global sales function.
Itafos’ new CEO, David, said that he was very excited to join the company’s management team.
“The company is uniquely positioned to continue serving our customers safely and reliably from our existing asset base with improving market fundamentals representing a positive change for our current product portfolio and our future,” he said.
“I look forward to spearheading the company’s growth in the agricultural sector,” he added.
Itafos remains unchanged at C$0.32 per share.
