Armajaro Trading CEO Richard Ryan Said to Leave Commodity Group

Richard Ryan, chief executive officer of Armajaro Trading Group Ltd., left the company, according to three people familiar with the matter.

The three people declined to be identified because the departure from the London-based company hasn’t been made public. Ryan became CEO in 2007 when he took over for Anthony Ward, co- founder of the trading company’s parent, Armajaro Holdings Ltd. The trading division supplies cocoa, sugar and coffee.

Simone Selzer, a spokeswoman for Armajaro from the public relations company Brunswick Group, declined to comment when contacted by Bloomberg. A call to Ryan’s desk was not answered.
