Codan finds CEO successor
Investors are pushing Codan shares higher after the company updated the ASX with its latest news.
In its announcement, Codan advised it has appointed Alf Ianniello as the new managing director and CEO.
Ianniello brings a wealth of experience to the role, having been CEO of Adelaide-based Detmold Group for 14 years. Prior to that, he held a number of senior positions during his 12-year international career. These include roles at automotive and defence companies, Schefenacker Vision Systems, and British Aerospace
Ianniello has a Bachelor of Engineering, majoring in Electronic Engineering. He completed the Wharton Business School Global CEO program at the University of Pennsylvania in 2012.
The inclusion follows an extensive search process which found a strong list of candidates, both internal and external.
Ianniello is expected to start with Codan on 4 January 2022 following the completion of his notice period. Outgoing Codan managing director and CEO Donald McGurk will retire from the role at that time.
Codan chair David Simmons commented:
On behalf of the Board, I am delighted to announce Alf’s appointment. Having served on the Detmold Board for eight years up until 2019, I was able to see at first-hand that Alf was an outstanding CEO and leader. He has a proven track record of leveraging innovation and organisational capabilities and achieved significant growth in sales and profitability during his time as CEO, with revenues reaching US$450 million.
Our search criteria of appointing a CEO with international experience whilst running a complex business at scale has been fulfilled with Alf’s appointment.
