Oterra colours appoints new chief financial officer amid continued expansion

Danish headquartered natural colours group, Oterra, has appointed Hubert Windegger as its new chief financial officer joining the business this month, as it continues its global market expansion, including operating within confectionery segments, writes Neill Barston.

The new post-holder joins the company with over 14 years of finance leadership experience, including roles at Private Equity-owned carve-outs and as CFO of ASK Chemicals. His strategic insights and proven track record in driving growth make him an invaluable addition to Oterra as we continue to innovate and expand our reach in the natural color ingredients markets.

As the business noted, the appointment of Windegger comes after its current CFO, Mads Dehlsen Winther, who, after careful consideration, has decided to explore other career opportunities after a successful period with the company that had seen him promoted to being interim CEO.

In addition, the business thanked him for for taking on the interim CEO role until I joined as CEO on January 1st, 2024, and further commended him for his significant contributions during his tenure, particularly his role in improving the finance function and contributing to the leadership of Oterra during a period of continuous transformation.

Regarded as the largest provider of naturally sourced colours globally, the firm launched in 1876, and underwent a key development in recent years after having changed its name from Chr Hansen Natural Colours.

As the business added, since its original founding, it has continued to share its expertise in colours for food, beverage, dietary supplements, engaging with a wide range of manufacturers across market categories  appealing products to consumers around the world. And we continue to empower our partners to meet demand for safe, sustainable and natural food on our journey together towards natural.

Martin Sonntag Chief Executive Officer, Oterra, commented: “I am confident that Hubert’s insights and leadership will be invaluable assets as we continue to drive Oterra forward on our journey of growth and success.”
