American Italian Pasta Company has announced a restructuring of its sales and marketing organisation which will include the promotions of sales executives, and the departure of Daniel Trott, executive vice president of sales and marketing.

Pat Regan becomes senior vice president of national accounts, Mike Kaczynski senior vice president of East Region, and Tom Branich senior vice president of West Region. Meanwhile Jerry Dear continues as executive vice president of Ingredient, Food Service and Club Channels but assumes increased general management responsibilities for these businesses. All four will be reporting directly to Jim Fogarty, president and CEO.

"I am excited about the strength and depth of our senior sales management team and our marketing organisation," Fogarty said. "I look forward to working closely with them in executing our strategic initiatives and driving success in the future. We collectively remain focused on delivering the high quality products and excellent service to our customers."
