Trishul Mandana, head of coffee trading at Louis Dreyfus Commodities BV, has left the company, the company after 22 years for “personal reasons,” a company spokeswoman said in an emailed statement on Wednesday.
Mandana, based in Geneva, joined the company in 1992 to trade grains and moved to the coffee business a year later, according to a profile on the company’s website. He took his current role in 2008.
Louis Dreyfus just last week appointed Mayo Schmidt as chief executive officer as part of a broader management overhaul that started last year.
Mandana will be replaced by Mikael Morn, who has served as the company’s head of North America. His appointment is effective Jan. 1, the spokeswoman said in the emailed statement.
Mandana will remain with the company for “some time” during the transition, she added.
