Maurizio Brusadelli has been appointed as replacement for Nick Bunker as president for Kraft Foods UK & Ireland (UK&I).
Bunker has moved to take up a position as chief executive of United Biscuits’ recently separated KP Snacks division.
Brusadelli has worked for Kraft Europe for 19 years in a number of senior roles, including general manager of Iberia, and most recently headed up the pan-European Gum & Candy category in Zurich.
“The UK&I business is in great shape - it is outgrowing its peers, investing in its future and is going from strength to strength,” said Brusadelli. “I very much look forward to helping shape its future.”
Bunker said: “I have had 12 fantastic years with Kraft Foods and have immensely enjoyed my time here. I am particularly proud of the work and achievements we have made in combining two huge businesses in Cadbury and Kraft Foods in the UK & Ireland to create one that is in great shape and outgrowing its peers.”
