Victorian dairy cooperative, Murray Goulburn is on the search for a new general manager of trading following the resignation of Malcolm McCullough.

 “Malcolm has resigned to take up an exciting opportunity with a non-competing business and we wish him the best of luck,” a spokesperson told the Weekly Times Now.

“He will remain with MG until the end of March to assist with a smooth transition to interim arrangements.”

“We have commenced an internal and external search for a new General Manager of MG Trading.”

During his time at the cooperative, McCullough oversaw a number of key changes including the rebranding and purchasing of new stores.

McCullough’s resignation comes just weeks after Murray Goulburn sold up its shares in Warrnambool Cheese and Butter (WCB) to Canadian dairy processor, Saputo. Murray Goulburn’s decision to sell ended a three way bidding war between Bega Cheese, Murray Goulburn and Saputo for WCB.

Saputo currently holds an 80 percent share in WCB, and Japanese beverage giant, Kirin has said that it has no intention of selling up its 10 percent share in the company.
