EUROPE: Cadbury Europe boss to leave group
The head of Cadbury's operations in Europe is to leave the confectionery giant at the end of the month, the company has confirmed to just-food.
Tamara Minick-Scokalo, who only became president, Europe at Cadbury in January, is to leave the business after two-and-a-half years with the business.
Minick-Scokalo's role will be combined with that of Ignasi Ricou, Cadbury's European commerical operations director. Ricou will take on the enlarged role.
A Cadbury spokesperson told just-food that Minick-Scokalo had acted as a "caretaker" in the group's move into a pure confectionery company.
"It's a combination of streamlining some positions and ensuring quicker decision-making," the spokesperson told just-food. "Cadbury has only been in its current shape for a year and these types of evolutions are not unusual."
Prior to joing Cadbury in 2007, Minick-Scokalo held senior positions at cosmetics group Elizabeth Arden and Procter & Gamble.
