Mondelēz International has announced that Luca Zaramella, Senior Vice President of Corporate Finance and a 20-year veteran of the company, will become EVP, Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective August 1, 2018. As CFO, Zaramella will be responsible for the oversight of the company’s global Finance, Information and Technology Solutions and shared services functions. He will report directly to Dirk Van de Put, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and will be a member of the Mondelēz International Leadership Team.

Zaramella will replace Brian Gladden, who will leave the company in August. After 10 years as a public company CFO, Gladden has decided to pursue an opportunity outside of the Fast Moving Consumer Goods sector.

“Luca is a strong financial and strategic leader who possesses deep knowledge of our commercial business at a local level around the world, and deep financial expertise,” says Van de Put. “He has been developed to take on this role for many years and has been closely involved in the development of our new strategic framework. I feel fortunate to have such an experienced executive move seamlessly into the CFO role, and I’m excited to partner with him as we deliver on our new long-term strategy and drive shareholder value creation.”

Van de Put continues: “I want to thank Brian for his many contributions to our company, including helping with my transition into the CEO role.  We wish him all the best in this exciting new chapter of his career and appreciate his commitment to helping prepare Luca for this role.”

Gladden says: “I have enjoyed working with the Mondelēz International team to build a world-class global Finance organization. Leaving the company is a tough decision, but I look forward to a new career experience and depart knowing that Luca is an ideal choice to be the company’s next CFO.  Luca and I have worked side-by-side over the past few years, and I have incredible respect for his financial expertise and company knowledge. I’m confident in the company’s long-term strategic direction and the team who will lead its delivery, including Dirk, and now, Luca.”

With more than 20 years of broad financial experience in both emerging and developed markets, and a track record of delivering strong results, Zaramella has an intimate knowledge of the company’s business across products, markets, operations, competitors and customers.  Over the past four years, Luca has assumed a range of responsibilities to prepare him for this role, including Corporate Controller, Treasurer and global head of Financial Planning & Analysis. Zaramella has served as Mondelēz International’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Finance since 2016 and was the Senior Vice President and Corporate Controller from 2014 to 2016. Prior to that, he was Senior Vice President, Finance of Mondelez Europe. He began his career with the company in Italy before holding positions of increasing seniority in Latin America, Europe and North America.
