Mondelez International Names Mark Clouse Chief Commercial Officer And Tim Cofer Chief Growth Officer

Oct. 29, 2015

Mondelēz International announced that it has named Mark Clouse, 47, to the newly created position of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), and Tim Cofer, 46, as Chief Growth Officer (CGO), as the company continues to sharpen its focus on cost savings, growth and commercial execution.  These changes become effective in January 2016.

"We've seen great benefit in consolidating our cost agenda under our CFO and our growth agenda under our Chief Growth Officer," Rosenfeld said.  "We now have the same opportunity to sharpen our global commercial execution by creating this new Chief Commercial Officer position.  Brian Gladden, Tim Cofer and Mark Clouse, together with our region presidents, Daniel Myers and our Integrated Supply Chain teams, will work hand in hand to advance our transformation agenda and accelerate growth on both our top and bottom lines."

In his role as CCO, Clouse, who currently serves as CGO, will oversee the company's commercial execution with oversight of all five geographic regions as well as the global sales function.  This new role is designed to simplify and accelerate day-to-day P&L decision-making and trade-offs while focusing investments in areas that will best drive profitable growth.

Cofer, who currently serves as Executive Vice President and President, Asia Pacific and EEMEA, is a 23-year veteran of the company and has successfully led large commercial operations in four different regions around the world. As CGO, he will oversee the development of next generation innovation platforms and new business opportunities that will accelerate future growth. Corporate strategy, global categories and global marketing, as well as research, development and quality will report to him.

"Mark and Tim are very talented senior executives who are well-positioned to take on these new enterprise roles," Rosenfeld continued.  "Their strong operating experience in emerging and developed markets, combined with a deep understanding of our categories, will enable us to continue to deliver sustainable, profitable growth and top-tier returns to our shareholders."

Concurrent with these changes, the company announced that Maurizio Brusadelli will assume the role of President of Asia Pacific; Dave Brearton, EVP, Strategic Initiatives, will retire at year-end; and Tracey Belcourt, EVP, Strategy, will leave the organization.
