    Consumer healthcare giant Haleon has announced the appointment of Dawn Allen as its next Chief Financial Officer.

    Dawn will join Haleon on Oct 28 and will assume the role of CFO and join the Board from Nov 1.

    Allen will replace Tobias Hestler, who is stepping down for better work balance amid the management of a long-term health condition. He will remain within the business until the end of the year to support the transition.

    Allen is currently the CFO at Tate & Lyle. She previously had a 25-year career at Mars, where she was most recently Global CFO and VP Global Transformation.

    Brian McNamara, Haleon’s Chief Executive, commented, “We are delighted to have appointed Dawn as our next CFO. She has a proven track record as a CFO with extensive consumer and international experience and will be a great addition to our executive team.

    “I want to take this opportunity to thank Tobias for his significant contribution in creating Haleon as a standalone business and for the close partnership over the last few years. He has played a critical role in shaping and building Haleon’s foundations and putting us on a path for long-term success.”

    Sir Dave Lewis, Haleon’s Chair commented, “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Tobias for his significant input to the Board and his strong support to Brian and the management team and wish him all the very best for the future. We are very pleased to appoint Dawn as Haleon’s CFO. Dawn has deep consumer and financial experience and will be a very welcome addition to the Board.”

    Allen added, “I am very excited to join the team at Haleon. Its clear purpose and fascinating journey through separation and beyond sets a strong foundation for the future. I am looking forward to help shape the next phase of the journey.”

    Hestler commented, “I have been a Type 1 diabetic all my life and it’s a condition that has always needed careful management. That becomes even more important as you get older and I’ve therefore concluded that after 30 years, now is the right time to step down and take my experience into non-executive and advisory roles. I’ve had 15 fantastic years helping bring together the businesses that Haleon has become and listing the company. I’m very proud of the business we have built and the potential that it has. I will continue at Haleon until the end of this year and look forward to helping ensure an orderly transition to Dawn as she takes on the role.”
