Fonterra has announced its new senior management team as it moves ahead with reshaping the organisation.

Eleven of the 12 new Fonterra Management Team roles have now been filled, all by internal appointments.

Fonterra chief executive officer Theo Spierings said he had drawn on "a strong bench strength" when assembling the team.

"The new structure and senior appointments reflect our focus on dairy nutrition and emerging markets, as well as our intention to reduce layers and duplication to drive efficiencies across the business," Spierings said.

Fonterra has formed new business divisions to grow emerging markets in China/India and Latin America, plus a new global Fonterra Nutrition business, he said.

"These changes, along with re-configuration of existing business units and the support functions within the company, will position us to increase volumes and value in line with our strategy".

The new organisation structure will take effect on August 1, 2012.

The new Fonterra management team comprises:

# Chief Financial Officer, Jonathan Mason

# Managing Director Group Optimisation and Supply Chain, Ian Palliser

# Group General Manager Strategy, Maury Leyland

# Group General Manager Mergers and Acquisitions, Paul Campbell

# Managing Director Co-operative Affairs, Todd Muller
