In order to drive the company’s growth strategy in the North American and European regions, the Kellogg Company has appointed Chris Hood as president of Kellogg North America, with Dave Lawlor taking his place as president of Kellogg Europe.
Hood will lead the portfolio of businesses within the company’s largest region, including US Morning Foods, US Snacks, US Frozen Foods, US Specialty Channels, Kashi and Canada. He replaces Paul Norman who left the company earlier this year.
Steven Cahillane, chief executive, said: “Chris is a talented executive who has successfully led our European business through challenging market conditions and expansion into new markets, revitalising our marketing and innovation activity and improving our profitability.”
“In recent months, I’ve had the opportunity to spend more time with the Kellogg North America businesses, and I am confident that they are on firm strategic and financial footing. Chris is the right person to build on the progress the team has made.”
