Lamb Weston Holdings has named Bernadette Madarieta chief financial officer, following the retirement of Robert McNutt. The appointment will be effective Aug. 6.

Madarieta is being promoted from vice president and controller, a role she has had since Lamb Weston spun off from Conagra in 2016. Before joining Lamb Weston, she had served as vice president and controller at two packaging suppliers: Packaging Corporation of America, a containerboard and corrugated packaging manufacturer, and Boise Inc., a packaging and paper products manufacturer.

“It gives me great confidence to know that Bernadette is stepping into this role,” CEO Tom Werner said in a statement. “Not only does she have a deep understanding of the Lamb Weston business, she is also highly respected by her colleagues across the organization. I look forward to working closely with Bernadette in her new role to drive value for all of our stakeholders.”
