Nestle’s leadership change
Nestle Pakistan underwent a change in its top management and Magdi Batato has become the new managing director of the organization.
Batato replaced Ian James Donald, who would be serving as managing director of Nestle Equatorial African Region (EAR).
Batato was the group technical and production director for Nestle UK and Ireland. He joined the Nestle group in 1991 in Switzerland and has pursued a successful factory and technical management career in Switzerland, Germany, Lebanon, South Africa, Malaysia, the UK and Ireland.
Donald had been managing director of Nestle Pakistan since September 1, 2009. He was deputed from Nestle Malaysia Berhad, where he served as director of ice cream, chilled products and associated businesses.
Under his leadership, Nestle Pakistan succeeded in delivering strong financial results despite floods for two consecutive years, which hit the livestock sector and affected production channels of the company.
