Mondelez International has also announced that it will transition to a region category-led operating model worldwide starting January 1, 2015.

Mark is the ideal leader for this new position, with proven success across global categories as well as in regional and country operating roles in both emerging and developed markets.”

Mark Clouse has held a variety of senior positions during his 18 years with the company. Since the launch of Mondelez International in 2012, he has served as President of its North American business and been a key driver of the region’s growth and margin improvement. Prior to the spinoff of the company’s North American grocery operations, Mark Clouse was President of Kraft Foods’ Snacks and Confectionery business in North America. He has also led the company’s Global Category Team for Biscuits as well as its businesses in Brazil and China.

Mark Clouse’s appointment as Chief Growth Officer is effective immediately.  He will continue to report to Rosenfeld and lead the company’s North American region until his successor is named.
