Battle Creek, MI — Kellogg Co. has made multiple changes to its leadership team, including eliminating and introducing several roles.
Kellogg International President Paul Norman, who has been serving as President of Kellogg Europe on an interim basis, has been appointed to the new position of Chief Growth Officer and the role of international president has been eliminated. Kellogg reports he will be responsible for helping develop the company's long-term category strategies, including driving scalable, consumer-driven brand-building and innovation.
President of the firm’s Europe Snacks division, Chris Hood, will succeed Norman as President of its European business. “Hood joined Kellogg with the 2012 acquisition of Pringles and has a proven track record of building successful brands and retail partnerships, as well as driving product and supply chain innovation in the European, Asian and North American consumer product markets,” the company reports.
Kellogg North America President Brad Davidson is retiring after more than 35 years with the company, which has eliminated Davidson’s position.
Bryant explains: “The moves we announced today — including developing a longer-term strategy role with the Chief Growth Officer position and having three international regions and the North American business units report directly to me — reflect the need to drive scalable ideas though a flatter, more nimble and execution-oriented global organization.”
