Saputo Inc. recently announced the appointment of Frank Guido as president and chief operating officer, Dairy Division (USA), and of Haig Poutchigian as president and chief operating officer, Dairy Division (Canada). 

Guido joined Saputo in 2015 and has served as president and chief operating officer, Dairy Division (Canada) since April 2019. Over the last 25 years, Guido has held senior management positions in operations, supply chain, continuous improvement, and finance at other public companies in the consumer-packaged goods industry. 

Poutchigian joined Saputo in 2016 as senior vice president, Finance, Dairy Division (Canada) and also brings over 25 years of experience to the role, primarily in finance and operations.

“Frank is a seasoned, values-driven business leader who brings to the table a proven track record of operational excellence and delivering on strategic priorities. As such, I am thrilled to have Frank transition his talents to our USA team at a pivotal time in our Global Strategic Plan journey,” said Carl Colizza, president and chief operating officer (North America). “I am equally excited to have Haig take the lead role in our Canadian business. Haig has been instrumental to the Division’s growth and ongoing success, and his results-oriented focus will be key in driving the execution of our strategy.”

“Frank and Haig stepping into these roles reflects our deep bench of talent and leadership that can move cross-divisionally as our Company continues to grow,” said Lino A. Saputo, Chair of the Board, President and CEO. “I have tremendous confidence in these two outstanding leaders and the value they will continue to bring to our organization as we build on our current momentum and advance the Company’s strategic objectives.”
