Eddy Ketels will step down as CEO of Orffa at the end of 2023. He will be succeeded by Haiko Zuidhoff, who will start in his new role October 1.
Ketels has worked at Orffa for 35 years, becoming CEO in 2001. Under his leadership, Orffa has developed from a local player, mainly focused on ingredients in Belgium and the Netherlands, into a global innovative value-adding company with a presence in the main feed-producing countries, offering a balanced portfolio of feed additives.
Zuidhoff has worked in Asia for 25 years and moved back to The Netherlands in 2022. He most recently served IMCD as president for the Asia region, overseeing IMCD’s vision, strategy and accelerated growth through organic growth and mergers and acquisitions. Prior to IMCD, he served in various senior leadership roles at Trouw Nutrition Nutreco and Corbion. His knowledge and expertise will contribute to Orffa’s strategy and vision to be a value-adding partner to the global animal production of today and tomorrow.
Zuidhoff will be based at Orffa’s headquarters in Breda, the Netherlands.
