US: Dean Foods appoints strategy chief
Dean Foods today (14 November) announced the appointment of Greg McKelvey to the newly-created position of EVP and chief strategy and transformation officer, effective immediately.
McKelvey will report directly to chairman CEO Gregg Engles. He will be responsible for developing the company's strategic planning processes and capabilities, as well as leading Dean Foods' transformation efforts.
"This role is critical to Dean Foods as we accelerate our efforts to consolidate and integrate our many businesses," said Engles.
McKelvey will design and deliver Dean Foods' key strategic growth plan initiatives, as well as "a careful, risk-mitigating project management" approach to initiative implementation, the company said.
Dean Foods' hopes the new role will result in greater interaction between organisational capabilities, including information technology, and strategy.
Previously, McKelvey held senior management positions at the company's WhiteWave Foods unit.
"Over the past four years Greg was instrumental in designing and implementing the WhiteWave strategy to combine three separate, subscale businesses into a premium national branded business group with a shared vision, supply chain and process infrastructure," Engles said.
