IDF is announcing a change in management by end 2023 with the departure of its Director General, Ms. Caroline Emond, and the opening of the recruitment process to find her successor.

Ms. Emond, who has been serving as Director General of the organization for close to six years, will be stepping down at the end of the year. She will remain in her role until a suitable replacement has been found and will ensure a smooth transition in management.

“The Global Dairy sector has numerous reasons to be thankful for Caroline Emond’s leadership at IDF. She will leave the organization in a very strong position: IDF is the world’s leading source of expertise and scientific knowledge for the dairy sector and seen as the authority for decades. It is a resilient organization, as IDF will celebrate its 120th anniversary of creation. Caroline remains IDF DG and will continue to play her role with engagement and passion until her successor has been appointed” said IDF President Piercristiano Brazzale.

“It is a privilege to be the Director General of the IDF and I enjoy every minute of it. The timing for change is right for both the organization and for me. Over the last six years, I have worked tirelessly with the IDF team and with the community’s support to deliver on my mandate. I feel that I have successfully fulfilled the goals given to me. I’m proud of what we have accomplished together” said Caroline Emond, IDF Director General.
