Masterfoods has appointed Fiona Hughes as the new UK marketing director for petcare. She replaces David Wilson, who is leaving the company to join a consultancy.
Hughes, who takes over the role in May, is relocating from her current role as marketing director petcare for Masterfoods Australia and New Zealand.
Hughes will report to Mark Johnson, managing director for petcare. Johnson took over as head of the division at the start of 2006 after former managing director Richard Kellam was promoted to president of the European petcare division.
Masterfoods petcare brands include Chappie, Pal and Whiskas.
