His breadth and depth of expertise in all aspects of consumer products leadership – including supply chain, brand marketing, customer engagement and more – will provide valuable insight and strategic input to our team,” said Dirk Van de Put, chairman and chief executive of Mondelēz International.
Before joining GSK in 2015, McNamara held a variety of senior leadership positions for several global consumer products companies, including Novartis and Procter & Gamble. He currently sits on Haleon’s board of directors, as well as the board of directors of the Consumer Goods Forum.
