People: Cargill announces new president of feed business

Animal nutrition company Cargill announced that Sarena Lin has been named president of the company’s global compound feed business unit.

Lin was formerly corporate vice president and head of Strategy and Business Development at Cargill. Lin replaces Joe Stone, who served as president of the compound feed business unit for the last six years and was promoted to become a leader of the Cargill Animal Nutrition platform, which is made up of the company's compound feed business unit, now led by Lin, and premix business unit, led by David Webster.

Lin joined Cargill in 2011 and has since been an effective leader at the enterprise level, helping to drive Cargill's strategic agenda across business units and the company's business development and M&A activity.  She came to Cargill after 13 years at McKinsey & Company where she was most recently a principal specialising in mergers and acquisitions.  She also held roles as co-leader of McKinsey's China Sourcing Center and managing partner of the Taipei Office. Earlier in her career, she worked as a sales representative at Proctor & Gamble.
