Eduardo Miron, a Marfrig employee since 2010, has been named the company’s chief financial officer and investor relations officer.

Prior to the appointment, Miron served as the chief financial officer of Keystone Foods, the U.S. subsidiary of the Brazil based meat and poultry company.

Miron assumes the role as the company made the choice to simplify its organizational structure, the company announced in a notice to the market on May 2. Ricardo Florence, 61, is stepping down as he has reached the age limit recommended by the company for leading executive positions. He will assist Miron in the transition process.
