Kraft promotes Cadbury UK managing director

Cadbury’s UK managing director Trevor Bond has been handed a new role as president of Kraft Foods Europe, as the US food company begins to integrate the two businesses.

Bond is promoted to president (markets) of Kraft Europe, giving him responsibility for the group’s individual national business units.

Kraft’s UK and Ireland managing director, Nick Bunker, takes over the combined UK business of Kraft and Cadbury, joining Bond. They will both report to Kraft European president Mike Clarke.

Clarke says retaining Bond reflected the “’best of both’ approach” Kraft would adopt following its takeover.

“Trevor Bond has done a terrific job in building the Cadbury business in Britain and Ireland and we are fortunate to be able to take advantage of his experience to help accelerate growth across all of our European markets,” He says.

He adds: “Nick Bunker will be inheriting a very special asset in Cadbury and I know he has the experience to build an even stronger company that will be a major force in the food industry.”

Yesterday, Kraft said a further 150 UK jobs could be lost as a result of the takeover.
