US baked goods producer Flowers Foods has promoted Karyl Lauder to the position of vice president and chief accounting officer, and Vandy Davis to vice president and corporate controller.

Both will report to Steve Kinsey, who was named senior vice president and chief CFO in August, following the retirement of Jimmy Woodward.

The Georgia-based company said Lauder would serve as a key advisor to Flowers Foods' senior management while also continuing to develop and direct the company's accounting policy and procedures.

"Karyl has almost three decades of knowledge and experience, making her an invaluable member of our team," Kinsey said.

As vice president and corporate controller, Davis will administer accounting and financial reporting policy and develop strategic direction for the company in this area.
