Eduardo Miron is the new CEO of Marfrig
Replacing Martín Secco at the helm of the world’s second largest beef company
Brazilian Marfrig Global Foods has announced Eduardo Miron as its new chief executive officer. Miron replaces Martín Secco, who has led the company since 2015.
Miron joined Marfrig in 2010 and, since 2016, has been the chief financial and investor relations officer while also serving as the chief financial officer of Keystone Foods in the United States. Before joining Marfrig, he worked for ten years at Grupo Safra and for more than two decades at U.S.-based Cargill, where he held leadership positions in Brazil and the United States. Miron, 55, holds a degree in accounting, a graduate degree in finance and an MBA from Business School São Paulo/University of Toronto.
“The choice of Eduardo Miron as CEO underlines our commitment to a financially and operationally sustainable Marfrig. Miron was at the forefront of the company’s most recent strategic operations: the acquisition of controlling interest in National Beef and the divestment of Keystone. These transactions have transformed Marfrig into a simpler company focused on beef and supported by a global production and distribution platform. Also, Marfrig is now a company with low financial leverage,” said Marcos Molina dos Santos, the controlling shareholder and chairman of the board.
