WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK, U.S. — In mid-December, Bunge International Ltd. named Alberto Weisser chief executive officer, effective Jan. 1, 2000. Formerly chief financial officer of Bunge International, Mr. Weisser also is c.e.o. of Bunge Ltd., the company's agribusiness subsidiary. Both companies are based in White Plains.
