Working in a diverse range of departments has left Michael with a deep understanding of Glanbia Nutritionals’ global offering to food and drink brands. While in the Quality Assurance (QA) department, he was responsible for analysing risks and preventing hazards on production lines.
In his new role, Michael will define product positioning and focus, working alongside colleagues in Sales, Finance, Customer Service, Procurement, Marketing, Operations, Quality and Research & Development (R&D) to drive Glanbia Nutritionals’ business performance.
