Prior to joining INTL FCStone, Bray served as APAC dairy buyer for chocolate producer, Barry Callebaut. He has also served in a number of roles with Fonterra, the world’s largest dairy cooperative, including as a trader on the firm’s commodity risk and trading team, and as an operational planner in cream sales.
Bray’s appointment is the latest example of INTL FCStone Inc.’s ongoing commitment to building out its service infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific region. The dairy trade in this region has grown exponentially, based on the volume of dairy products moving through the New Zealand Exchange. INTL FCStone’s clients currently account for the majority of that volume, and the dairy group’s goal is to maintain its present level of market share in the region, even as that market continues to grow.
Bray, who will work from the company’s Singapore office, is also joined by Charly Chai, an accomplished food industry professional with experience in physical trading, logistics management and sales.
