Tate & Lyle has appointed Mondelez's Imran Nawaz as its new chief financial officer, with effect from 1 August.
Nawaz succeeds Nick Hampton, who was promoted to the role of chief executive back in January and took on the job at the start of the month.
Nawaz joins the company from Mondelez International, where he was senior vice president of finance for Europe since 2014. Prior to that, during a 16-year career at Mondelez and Kraft Foods, he held a number of senior financial roles across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Nick Hampton said: “I am delighted to welcome Imran to Tate & Lyle and the executive team. He brings with him deep experience of the global food industry, and a proven track record of financial leadership. I very much look forward to working with him as we continue to drive the company's growth agenda.”
Chairman Gerry Murphy said: “Imran's broad financial, business and international experience will be of great value to Tate & Lyle, and he is a very welcome addition to our board.”
