Seasoned Information Security professional and expert Venkatesh Subramaniam has joined as the Global CISO for Olam International in Chennai this week.
Olam International is a leading agri-business company operating from seed to shelf in 70 countries, supplying food and industrial raw materials to over 23,000 customers worldwide. Established in 1989, today the company has built a global leadership position in many of our businesses such as Edible Nuts, Cocoa, Spices and Vegetable Ingredients, Coffee, Cotton and Rice.
The security role in Olam has been significantly elevated and Venkatesh will report directly to the Group Head - Shared Corporate Services. As part of his core responsibility, Venkatesh will oversee security for the group globally across business operations and for about 35000 employees.
For the first time, Olam has kept the security role outside IT underlying its elevation and strategic importance to the organization.
