Changes to Emmi Group Management

Changes to Emmi Group Management

With effect from 1 January 2017, Swiss dairy group Emmi has announced a number of changes to its Group Management. Robert Muri, Executive Vice President Switzerland, will retire at the end of 2016 as planned. His role will be taken over by Marc Heim, currently Executive Vice President Europe. Marc Heim’s successor will be Robin Barraclough, the group’s current Chief Marketing Officer. As part of the reshuffle, Emmi will be expanding its Group Management with a Chief Supply Chain Officer. The search for candidates for this newly created position and for the vacant position of Chief Marketing Officer has been initiated.

Robert Muri has worked for Emmi for over 30 years, 21 of which as a member of Group Management. Among other roles, he has been in charge of marketing and sales of fresh products, and subsequently the entire Fresh Products Division. In 2004, he also assumed responsibility for the Dairy Products Division, and was appointed Deputy CEO in 2007. Robert Muri played a decisive role in Emmi’s transition from a regional to an international company, for which it owes him a great debt of gratitude.

Marc Heim has been at Emmi since 2009 and currently holds the role of Executive Vice President Europe. From 2009 to 2013, he was Head of Sales for Emmi, and therefore has an in-depth knowledge of the Swiss business. Since the beginning of 2014, he has achieved very good results in the business division Europe. His previous professional experience includes management roles at Effems AG (now Mars Schweiz AG), Kambly SA and Halter Bonbons AG.

Robin Barraclough has also been at Emmi since 2009. As Chief Marketing Officer, he has successfully carried forward Emmi’s strategy, with a focus on strong brands. Before joining Emmi, he held key marketing roles at Mars Incorporated over a period of 16 years, spending time in Bremen and Moscow, among other locations.

As part of its succession planning, Emmi has decided to expand Group Management with the role of Chief Supply Chain Officer. An important reason behind this is the additional potential that can be tapped by structuring production and logistics processes in Swiss and international production facilities more efficiently. A corresponding level of importance will therefore be attached to the topic within the company.
