Nestlé senior management changes: strategic continuity ensured

 

Vevey, 21  November 2012  - Marc  Caira, Deputy  Executive Vice  President  in 
charge of  Nestlé Professional,  our  globally-managed business  dedicated  to 
out-of-home, will retire  at the end  of April  2013 after 36  years with  the 
Nestlé group. Marc was  instrumental in setting  up Nestlé Professional's  two 
growth platforms:  branded  beverage  solutions and  food  solutions  for  the 
out-of-home industry.  The Board  of Directors  thanks him  for laying  strong 
foundations for continued growth in this important category.

 

The Board  of Directors  has  decided to  appoint Martial  Rolland,  currently 
market head of Nestlé France, to  succeed Marc Caira as Deputy Executive  Vice 
President in  charge of  Nestlé Professional  from 1  May 2013.  Martial  will 
become a member  of Nestlé's  Executive Board.  A French  national, he  joined 
Nestlé in 1988  and worked in  different markets across  Asia before  becoming 
market head of Turkey,  then India and,  in 2010, France,  one of the  Group's 
largest markets  with a  very wide  product portfolio.  Martial has  extensive 
business experience  with a  successful  track record,  both in  emerging  and 
developed markets.

 

Nespresso CEO Richard Girardot, will succeed Martial Rolland as market head of
Nestlé France on 1 April 2013. A French national, he joined Nestlé in 1986 and
held various positions in Nestlé's water business in France before taking over
global responsibility for Nespresso in 2007. Richard is very familiar with the
French environment and has a deep understanding of the country's culture.  His 
broad business experience in different categories and strong leadership skills
will allow him to take the French market to new levels of performance.

 

Jean-Marc Duvoisin,  Deputy Executive  Vice President,  Human Resources,  will 
succeed Richard Girardot as Nespresso CEO  on 1 March 2013. A Swiss  national, 
he joined Nestlé in 1986 and worked in different markets across Latin  America 
before becoming market head of the Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador region  and 
later Mexico. Jean-Marc's  deep knowledge  of the  company, his  international 
experience and  recognised leadership  make him  the right  candidate to  lead 
Nespresso's expansion, innovation and internationalisation in an  increasingly 
challenging competitive environment.

 

The Board of  Directors has decided  to appoint Peter  Vogt, currently  market 
head of Nestlé Malaysia and Singapore, to succeed Jean-Marc Duvoisin as Deputy
Executive Vice President, Human Resources from
1 March 2013. Peter will become a member of Nestlé's Executive Board. A  Swiss 
national, he joined Nestlé in 1980 and took on various assignments in Asia and
Europe. He was market  head of the Nordic  Region, Indonesia and, since  2009, 
Malaysia and Singapore.  Peter has worked  in diverse environments  and has  a 
strong record in developing and motivating people.

 

These senior management changes will  deliver strategic continuity and  ensure 
operational performance.
