Maple Leaf Foods, Inc. is looking for a new Chief Financial Officer.

“This is an inflection point in my career and the right time both personally and professionally for me to take on a new challenge in a new industry,” said Debbie Simpson, who will be leaving the CFO position effective November 1. “I have enjoyed my career with Maple Leaf immensely. In the process, I have worked alongside a finance team with great depth and experience and I am committed to ensuring a smooth transition.”

Simpson joined the company 12 years ago and has served as CFO for the last five years. An executive search is underway for her successor.

“Debbie has made a very significant contribution to Maple Leaf through her executive leadership in financial management, reporting and strategic initiatives that have shaped the future of our company,” said Michael McCain, president and CEO. “We have benefited immensely from her expertise and dedication and wish her the very best as she pursues her next challenge.”
