Reports say that Rosenfeld would continue as chairman of the board until March 31, 2018. After which Van de Put would take charge and assume the role of chairman and CEO.
The new CEO!!
So, who is this Dirk Van de Put!!
What was he doing before?
Let’s see…..
Since 2011, Dirk Van de Put has been the CEO and President of McCain Foods Limited. Earlier, he served as Executive Vice President of Fresh Dairy Products and as President of the Global Over-the-Counter. Prior to that, he served as President of the Caribbean division of The Coca-Cola Company.
Mondelez - Brand story
Boasting to be world’s second largest confectionery, the Mondelez International has net revenue of about $26 billion in the previous year.
Each and every person in this world would admit that he/she has an intense crush on any of Oreo, Cadbury, Dairy milk, Milk, Toblerone , Bellvita biscuits, and others.
This clearly illustrates that Mondelez has a very strong portfolio that has helped it to maintain a strong position in the snack empire.
Today, around 165 countries, enjoy the delicacies from Mondelez – be it biscuits, chocolate, gum, candy powdered beverages etc.
Also it is a proud member of the Standard and Poor's 500, NASDAQ 100 and Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
Let us now have a quick recap of who Irene is!!
Who is Irene Rosefield?
One of the most powerful and highly paid women in business, Irene Rose field is currently the head of Mondelez, who will continue in her position till the end of 2018.
During her childhood days, she aspired to become the president of United States, but ended up being the head of Mondelez.
True that she played a pivotal role in steering up the brand image of Oreos, Trident and Ritz. She  was also responsible for  splitting  of  Krafts  business into two firms  one Mondelez and other Kraft – Heinz  for   American market . Take over  of  Cadbury has been her most applauded  move  .
A small drift
Rosenfeld shifted firm's Oreo factory from Chicago to Mexico, for which workers protested. The company reported a drop in quarterly sales which caused a delay in shipping and invoicing.
Would he be able to lead the company, like his predecessor?
Let us wait and see…..
