USA, Minneapolis. Following changes in leadership in December, Agribusiness giant Cargill announced the departure of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jamie Miller.

According to a Cargill press release, Miller will step down to accept an opportunity outside the company. Joanne Knight will serve as Cargill’s acting CFO.

“We are grateful for Jamie’s service to Cargill,” said Brian Sikes, Cargill President and CEO. Sikes added: “Joanne is highly regarded by the Board and Executive Team for her strong track record of leadership and operating results and is well-equipped to take the role of acting CFO. She will step into the role from a position of strength as a seasoned finance leader who has built her career on delivering results through dynamic market cycles. Together, we will grow with customers, strengthen our core and thoughtfully target new markets to ensure we are a reliable, sustainable partner for our customers –today and in the future.”

Knight currently serves as Vice President of Finance for Cargill’s Agriculture Supply Chain enterprise, which includes Ocean Transportation and the World Trading Group. Before Cargill, Knight spent ten years in finance, marketing, and business leadership roles at General Mills that included P&L responsibility, as well as roles in supply chain finance, sales finance, and financial planning and analysis.

Shortly after Cargill’s announcement, the Wall Street Journal released that Miller was recruited by Ernst & Young to lead the finances of its consulting arm. Before joining Cargill a year and a half ago, Miller had been CFO at General Electric and worked as an audit partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, the WSJ reports.
