US: McCormick makes consumer products appointments
US spice giant McCormick & Co. has made a number of appointments within its consumer products division.
Rick Morse, vice president of consumer sales, has been appointed vice president of global customers. In his role, Morse will lead McCormick's initiatives to drive sales with customers based in the US as they expand in international markets, the firm said on Friday (7 January).
Meanwhile, Ed Landry has also been promoted to vice president of sales for the consumer products division. Previously vice president of strategic business, Landry will lead customer teams and broker partners responsible for growing McCormick's business with retail grocery customers.

All positions will report to Ken Stickevers, president of McCormick's US consumer products division.
"Rick and Ed are both passionate business leaders who each bring strong leadership skills to their new positions. I am excited about the growth these new roles will enable for our customers and McCormick," said Stickevers.
