The former finance director of Dairy Farm International Holdings, Tim Westinghouse, has resigned as a company director. The move follows the announcement in June that Mr Westinghouse would start concentrating more heavily on Asia in a newly-created position of director of finance and services for Dairy Farm Asia. Mr Westinghouse's departure from the board at the holding company was formalised at a board meeting yesterday. Edouard Ettedgui, who took over Mr Westinghouse's former finance role, said his resignation from the international board was a routine procedure. The different nature of his new role in Asia meant Mr Westinghouse was no longer able to carry on with the international board position. 'He is getting closer to the operation,' Mr Ettedgui said, adding the move was not a step down. Mr Westinghouse's move comes amid a series of changes at the group. Longstanding managing director Graeme Seabrook left the company last month, and the company has been trying to invigorate its operations as competition continues to intensify.
