The head of Viterra's processing operations has been tapped to lead Bunge's business in Canada.

Karl Gerrand, chief operating officer of processing with Viterra, will become managing director of Bunge Canada, replacing Rick Watson who is retiring March 31st.

Gerrand, who is originally from the Virden area, was responsible for 34 Viterra manufacturing facilities. He co-founded Can-Oat Milling in Portage, which eventually became part of Viterra's processing business.

"We are pleased to have an experienced leader like Karl join the Bunge team," said Soren Schroder, president and CEO of Bunge North America. "With his track record of delivering strong results, Karl is the right choice to drive Bunge's growth plans for our Canadian operations."

Watson worked for CanAmera Foods before Bunge bought its French parent company in 2002.
