The deputy CEO of German bakery firm Kamps has decided to leave the company.

Stefan von Klebelsberg will leave Kamps at the end of the year to pursue other career opportunities.

A Kamps spokesperson told just-food that von Klebelsberg had led the restructuring of the company's retail business. She added that a successor to von Klebelsberg had yet to be appointed.

Kamps, which is owned by Italian food group Barilla, will also see personnel director Martin Ruter leave at the end of the year.

Ruter, whose contract is set to expire, will be replaced by Jorg Drangmeister, human resources director for Barilla pasta subsidiary Wasa Deutschland.
