Edith Hamelryckx appointed as new HR director of Milcobel

On May 15, Edith Hamelryckx will take office as the new HR director of dairy cooperative Milcobel. Edith replaces Kris Lambrecht, who is turning his career around after almost 9 years at Milcobel.

Edith has over 25 years of experience in HR and held several key positions both nationally and internationally in companies such as SD Worx, Dupont de Nemours and Qualiphar. She has extensive experience in talent management, change management and labor relations. She is used to working in challenging environments with different stakeholders. She combines an economic approach with a natural and people-oriented leadership style.

"In the rapidly changing market in which Milcobel operates, we face a whole range of challenges in terms of personnel policy. These range from the war for talent, to talent management, training and advancement opportunities, employee engagement and ambassadorship, and well-being, to name a few," says CEO Nils van Dam. "Edith brings the necessary expertise to guide us through these challenges, and to further develop and professionalize our HR policy in the coming years, together with the HR team and with the support of management and the board of directors. We wish her every success in this endeavor."
