Chief Executive Officer
Toni joined Westland as Chief Executive in 2016, having spent a large part of her career within the Danone Group as Managing Director of Nutricia Australia and New Zealand; Managing Director of Danone Dumex (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd; and Managing Director of the Danone dairy business of Indonesia.
Drawing from her extensive experience within the food and beverage industry and, more specifically, within dairy company roles, Toni has focused her team’s efforts on ensuring Westland is operating in the most efficient manner across all product ranges. Coupled with identifying that the company’s key opportunities lay in leveraging its heritage and location, by offering differentiated products that add value to the shareholder base, this strategy will lay the foundations for Westland’s future success.
