Jörn Riemer, General Manager Food for Bremen-based Kraft Foods, is to leave the company at the end of March to take up a new position in Hamburg. Marketing director Frank von Glan has been named as his successor.

Riemer started his career at Kraft in 1985, in the sales and distribution team. He later moved sideways into marketing and later spent time building up management experience in Argentina before returning in 1998 to head up the German confectionery section and finally the entire food division.
