Mike Taylor has been appointed managing director for Mondelez’s UK business, replacing Phil Greenhalgh with effect from 15 April.
Taylor joined the Cadbury chocolate owner in April 2013, and is currently commercial director for Northern Europe.
He began his career at Kraft Foods, spending 12 years in a number of commercial roles. He left in 2006 to take on a number of sales positions including general manager for Kellogg’s UK snacks business, but returned in 2011 as field sales director, before leaving for Mondelez.
“I am delighted Mike will be taking up the role of UK managing director,” said Northern Europe president Mary Barnard. “I have no doubt his deep knowledge of the UK market and expansive experience within our commercial business will be the ideal ingredients for continuing the growth of our UK business.”
