Sydney-based food processing and packaging specialist tna has named Jonathan Rankin as Chief Executive Officer. Having recently returned to tna as Chief Sales Officer, Rankin will now lead tna’s day-to-day operations, while focusing on the implementation of new processes that will take the company’s operational efficiencies and growth to the next level.

Founded in 1982 by Alf and Nadia Taylor, tna has grown from Australian packaging pioneer into a global leader of food processing and packaging solutions for a wide range of industries, including snacks, confectionery, fresh and frozen produce.

MD Alf Taylor says: “Our growth over the last few years has been incredible. We now operate out of 30 sites and employ over 500 talented people around the world. It’s a huge step-up from when Nadia and I started the business from our kitchen table. Over the last 36 years, we’ve added some truly amazing people to our team, gained a fantastic bunch of customers and established ourselves as a global leader on the snack food manufacturing market.

“Jonathan celebrated some of our most important milestones with us and played an instrumental role in our growth. We were thrilled when he decided to come back and can’t wait to see just how much further he’ll take the business.”

Jonathan Rankin is no stranger to tna, having filled various management roles from 1993 until 2003, returning in 2018 to oversee the company’s global sales division. Before rejoining tna, he served as General Manager for food processing specialist Marel, where he was responsible for the successful growth of the company’s Oceania operations.
