Fonterra’s Global Head of Consumer Business and Chief Marketing and Sales Officer, Anindya Dasgupta, has decided to move on from the company to set up his own consultancy named Growth Officers Inc. Dasgupta will officially exit from his role in Fonterra in next couple of months.
Headquartered in Singapore, Growth Officers Inc will be fully operational in August and initially it will focus on clients in Southeast Asia and later on aims to expand into India and China.
Dasgupta has been with Fonterra for close to five years, joining as VP and global head of Fonterra’s nutrition business, before rising to the role of global CMO and thereafter his current role.
Prior to joining Fonterra, he was with PepsiCo for more than six years, with his last role being senior director, global beverages group. He also worked at GSK for close to nine years.
At Fonterra, Dasgupta put his expertise gained from PepsiCo and GSK to good use for creating a global consumer business.
“I think Fonterra is by far the best when it comes to dairy R&D and B2B ingredients. The consumer business right now, is going through a thorough strategic review under the new management. After almost five exciting years, this is the right time for me to leave,” said Anindya Dasgupta.
