Kraft Foods names supply chain leadership

NORTHFIELD, Ill. — Kraft Foods announced that Daniel Myers will join the company in September as EVP supply chain.  Myers will lead the functional groups that make up the company's integrated supply chain, including procurement, manufacturing, engineering and customer service and logistics.  He succeeds David Brearton, who is now EVP and CFO.  Myers will report to chairman and CEO Irene Rosenfeld and be a member of the company's executive team.

Myers joins Kraft Foods from Procter & Gamble, which he was with for 33 years. Most recently, he served as VP product supply, where he led the supply chain function for P&G's global hair care business and had coordination responsibilities for the $28 billion beauty and grooming business, including manufacturing operations that supported sales in more than 170 countries. In that role, he led a "reinvention" of the company's global hair care supply chain, tripling the unit's annual cost savings in three years. In addition, Myers has broad international experience, having worked in every category in the P&G portfolio and in 49 countries.
