Fonterra chief financial officer Jonathan Mason is to retire in six months, New Zealand's biggest company has announced.

The affable American joined the dairy giant in 2009 as the global financial crisis gripped, and has been seen as highly influential in strengthening the company's financial position in tough times.

Chief executive Theo Spierings said Mason had also played a major part in the launch of Trading Among Farmers, and the associated unit IPO.

Mason's retirement was expected, Spierings said.

An international search had started for his replacement.
