The Hound notes that Fonterra’s head of people, culture and safety, Maury Leyland, left the co-op at the end of the month, citing personal reasons.

Given the way Fonterra has being performing in the public eye lately no one could blame the 11 year veteran for leaving. However, it’s been revealed there is a sound ‘personal reason’ underpinning her decision to quit. Apparently, Leyland is now in a relationship with Synlait Milk chief executive John Penno, a fact she had disclosed to Fonterra. But as a mate of your canine crusader opined, ‘it puts an interesting spin on the term sleeping with the enemy’.
