tna announces the appointment of Jonathan Rankin as chief sales officer (CSO).  A tna and industry veteran, Rankin returns to the company to head up tna’s global sales division and support customers as the company branches out into new applications and industry sectors.

Based out of tna’s Sydney office, he will be responsible for providing leadership and structure to tna’s rapidly expanding sales team, setting a sales strategy that supports tna’s ambitious growth plans, while ensuring that tna’s business objectives are closely aligned with the needs of its increasingly diverse customer base.

“We’re thrilled to be welcoming Jonathan back into the tna family,” comments Alf Taylor, CEO of tna. “He not only possesses the experience, but as a former employee, he’s also familiar with our history and unique business culture.”

Rankin’s experience in the food industry spans over three decades. Having held various global management roles at tna from 1993 until 2003, he is well-versed in the company’s culture, business objectives and portfolio of integrated food processing and packaging solutions. Most recently, he served as general manager for food processing specialist Marel, where he was responsible for the successful growth of the company’s Oceania operations.

Rankin says: “I’m really excited to be back at tna. The company’s growth has been incredible over the last 10 years. So much has changed since I left. The team has doubled in size, our sales have more than quadrupled and our portfolio has grown tenfold since 2003. We now deliver turnkey solutions that span the entire production line, from processing equipment to conveyors, seasoning, weighing, all the way through to bagging and end of line packaging.”
