AIB International, a global leader in food safety and quality, announces Dan Martin as president and CEO, starting April 1. He succeeds Andre Biane, who has led the company for the past eight years and announced in 2020 his plan to retire.
Martin is a food and beverage industry veteran who launched his own consulting practice in 2020, working with numerous food and beverage companies to drive profitable topline growth. Prior to that, Martin was CEO of Twinings North America for 15 years, leading them to become the fastest growing tea company in North America.
His career began in 1988 with Kraft Foods, where he held numerous positions of increasing responsibility in the sales and marketing organizations. He also then held various leadership roles at Eight O’Clock Coffee and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.
“Following decades of experience with CPG companies and also then consulting with several companies, I am particularly excited to now join AIB International. The company is well-positioned for growth and continued leadership in the industry,” says Martin. “I look forward to drawing on my experience to support the team in its quest to help the global food and beverage industry continually improve food safety and quality programs.”
Brad Allen, chair of AIB’s Board of Trustees, says Martin is a seasoned professional with a wealth of global CPG and industry leadership experience, making him the right person to lead the company forward.
“We believe Dan will help maximize the company’s potential and accelerate its future growth, broadly benefitting the food and beverage supply chain," says Allen.
