Mars Wrigley Confectionary names new global president

06/13/2018
The leadership team at Mars Wrigley Confectionary is going through a bit of a shakeup, following the appointment of a new global president.

Andrew Clarke, the company’s current chief marketing and customer officer, will be taking over the over the global president role in September and be based in the Chicago headquarters.

“Andrew is the right person to lead Mars Wrigley Confectionery into its next chapter. His track record for driving ambitious change while delivering results is the fuel our business needs to thrive in an ever-changing consumer and retail landscape,” Grant F. Reid, CEO of Mars, said. “Andrew brings great global perspective, combined with a principled approach to leadership and passion for engaging and inspiring teams.”

After joining the company’s U.K. division in 2000 where he started as the category leadership director, Clarke has taken upon several management roles spanning across the chocolate, pet care and food segments throughout the years. He will be taking over the global president role from Martin Radvan, who is retiring after a 32-year career with the company across multiple functions, business segments and countries, the company said.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead this iconic business with some of the world's most loved brands and to drive growth with our talented associates, customers and partners,” Clarke said.
