Kerry Group has announced the appointment of Nick Robinson as the new chief executive officer of Kerry Foods.
He will succeed Duncan Everett, who has stepped down from the position to take up a new role outside the organisation.
Robinson, who currently serves as the managing director of consumer brands for Kerry Foods, will transition into the new role over the next couple of months, the company said.
In 2017, he joined the company as the chief marketing officer and took up the role of managing director of brands in 2019.
Before joining Kerry Group he held several sales, commercial and marketing positions in Diageo, Coca-Cola and AB InBev.
'A Very Interesting Time'
Commenting on the appointment, CEO of Kerry Group, Edmond Scanlon, said, “He [Nick Robinson] is stepping into this role at a very interesting time as the food industry responds in innovative ways to the changing consumer behaviour resulting from COVID-19."
“I would also like to thank Duncan for his support and commitment and recognise the significant contribution he has made to consumer foods and the wider Kerry business over the past 25 years,” he added.
