Eamon Duignan has been appointed Member Relations Manager of Lakeland Dairies.
From Cornafean in Co Cavan, Mr Duignan is an Agricultural Science graduate of UCD who received first class honours specialising in animal science.
The Cornafean native joined Lakeland Dairies’ Graduate Programme and the Member Relations Department of the co-operative in 2014 and also completed a Diploma in Management in conjunction with the Irish Management Institute (IMI) during that time.
He succeeds Dermot Coyle who retired recently after many years of dedicated service to the co-operative.
“Together with my colleagues, I look forward to the further development of our member relations programmes which are designed to support dairy farmers with the most relevant information, advice and assistance across every aspect of their milk production and supply arrangements,” added the new manager.
“Meeting the needs of our many dairy customers worldwide begins on local milk supplying farms where we are fortunate to have a very high quality of milk supplied for processing.
“Our priority is to ensure long term and sustainable success for all of our milk producers and we will continue to work closely with them in achieving this aim.”
