Kellogg has promoted the finance chief of its North American operations to the post of CFO for the entire company.

The US cereal giant announced yesterday (8 December) that Ron Dissinger would take up the role on 3 January.

Dissinger, who has spent 22 years at Kellogg, replaces John Bryant as CFO. Bryant had held the position alongside his other job as chief operating officer.

"Ron will ensure that Kellogg continues its disciplined focus on results and financial integrity while John focuses on the broader elements of the COO role to continue to strengthen our sustainable growth model," said Kellogg president and CEO David Mackay.
