Rick rolls on back to corporateville

After three years as the chief executive of CAANZ, Rick Osborne has announced he will be stepping down from the role to take up the job of  group general manager, external relations at Fonterra, which is responsible for government relations, trade strategy and regional relations.

"It was always in the back of my mind to return to corporate at some stage, but there was no time frame on it," he says.

Osborne, who was a former head of government relations for Air New Zealand, starts the new job in March.

As for the highlights and biggest achievements of his tenure, he says he'll reflect on them in the next few week . And, as for potential replacements, he felt it was inappropriate to comment, aside from saying the CAANZ board will soon be undertaking an executive search.
