Most recently, Brian Gladden was Senior Vice President and CFO of Dell, the Texas-based technology company. While at Dell, Brian Gladden played a key leadership role in its transformation from a PC-focused company to a broad technology solutions company, as well as in its leveraged buyout earlier this year. He led all aspects of the finance function, and was also responsible for global information technology, security, facilities, corporate strategy and corporate development. Previously, he was the president and CEO of SABIC Innovative Plastics, the successor company to General Electric Company’s plastics business, after spending almost 20 years in senior financial and operational positions at GE. He ultimately led the sale of the GE Plastics business to SABIC in 2007.

“Adding Brian to our leadership team will accelerate our progress in becoming the best snacking company in the world,” says Irene Rosenfeld. “Brian has a proven track record in financial and operating discipline, aggressive cost management to expand margins and fund growth, and building and leading a global business services operation. This background, together with his extensive experience operating in emerging markets, creating shareholder value and developing talent, will greatly benefit our global organization and our shareholders.”

David Brearton will assume his new position as EVP, Strategic Initiatives on December 1. “Dave has played a key role in many of our company’s transformations, especially in the split of Kraft Foods to form Mondelez International and in the integration of the Cadbury and LU acquisitions,” says Irene Rosenfeld. “I thank Dave for his partnership as CFO these past three years and am delighted that he’ll continue to bring his significant experience to the execution of our transformation initiatives and to the successful launch of our coffee JV.”

Brearton has been CFO of Mondelez International since it was launched in 2012. He was named CFO of Kraft Foods the prior year and helped to lead its successful division into two separate companies. David Brearton began his career with the company in 1984 in his native Canada. Before being named CFO, he held a series of senior finance roles, including SVP, Finance at Kraft Foods International, and Corporate Controller.
