NYSE-listed sustainable agriculture and nutrition firm ADM has named Megan Britt as its new vice president of investor relations.
Britt brings to the role more than 20 years of experience in finance, investor relations and strategic positions, joining ADM with what the firm describes as ‘significant expertise in the food and agriculture industries’, having previously led IR functions at both Tyson Foods and Corteva Agriscience.
‘ADM has a great story to tell investors, and Megan is the right person to help us tell it,’ says Vikram Luthar, ADM’s chief financial officer, in a statement welcoming Britt to the company. ‘We’ve transformed our company and are advancing our strategy by building a better ADM and aligning our portfolio around major growth trends that are driving structural changes in our industry.
‘We’re proud of our record of growth and shareholder value creation and now we’re moving into new horizons of growth – we’re excited to have Megan join us at this important time.’
Talking about the firm’s ESG credentials in the introduction to ADM’s December 2021 investor day, Juan Ricardo Luciano, chairman, CEO and president, said: ‘Our culture comes to life in our purpose, to unlock the power of nature to enrich the quality of life. And we live that purpose every day through the products we make, through the services we deliver and also through our ESG efforts, whether it’s through the progress we are making in gender parity and leadership positions or through our sustainability projects.
‘In 2021 alone, we have delivered 432 mn meals to people with food insecurity. We have supported 8.2 mn students and farmers engaged in [science, technology, engineering and math] and agricultural education. And we have worked together with 650,000 farmers in sustainable agricultural programs. It’s nice to see these efforts also acknowledged externally by companies like Ethisphere, which has [named] ADM [one of] the world’s most ethical companies for two years in a row.’
