Brian Kruger to replace Paul Little as Toll MD
Brian Kruger, chief financial officer of Toll, will become managing director on 1st January 2012. The appointment follows the announcement in October 2010 of the planned retirement of Paul Little.
Kruger has more than 25 years’ experience in mining and steel production, and has been with Toll for two years.
Chairman Ray Horsburgh said: “The board took the strategic decision two years ago to increase the bench strength of the internal executive ahead of Paul’s departure.
“The board recognised that strength by bringing into the senior executive team such an experienced and rounded external leader. The two years Brian has been at Toll have given him the best possible starting point for his MD role. He is the candidate with external experience and internal understanding.”
