Warfield, who is vice president of Kimberly Clark’s family care business, is thought to be leaving to take up a role within a different sector.
It is not known when he will leave the fmcg business or if he has a job to go to. A direct replacement has yet to be announced.
A Kimberly Clark spokesperson says Warfield has left to “pursue a change in his career”.
His move is not thought to affect the UK marketing and brand teams.
The former Unilever marketer joined Kimberly Clark as managing director of the UK and Ireland business in 2006. He took over global family care operations in 2009 taking responsibility for Kleenex, Andrex and Velvet.
He is also a mentor for The Marketing Academy, the mentoring and coaching organisation supported by Marketing Week.
