Australian dairy company Bulla Foods has announced the appointment of Allan Hood to the position of chief financial officer.

Hood brings extensive experience to the position having previously held the role of global audit and risk director for global supply and procurement at Diageo PLC in the UK. During his time at Diageo, Hood also held several finance director positions, as well as the position of group financial planning and reporting director.

Bulla Food’s CEO Reg Weine said that Hood will play a key role in building on the company’s existing financial systems, processes and people capability.

“Bulla has grown significantly over the past few years and we will continue to grow our business organically and via strategic acquisitions. To have an executive with Allan’s experience is an important part of delivering our growth strategy,” said Weine.

“We searched internationally to find an executive of the highest calibre, and we are confident that Allan will make a significant contribution to the Bulla business.”

Hood has extensive experience in delivering multiple growth platforms for companies within the Diageo business. His knowledge of finance, risk and audit, business performance and growth, stewardship and compliance will bring a new wave of experience and drive to the business.

“My entire career has been spent within a large global matrixed organisation and I therefore understand how to operate effectively in a large business,” says Hood.

“However, where I will be of most benefit for the Bulla business is by bringing this big business experience and combining it with the experience I have gained through positions held in the more complex and challenging medium sized operations and acquisitions.”

Hood assumed the position of Bulla CFO earlier this month.
