Mick Beekhuizen is joining US food heavyweight Campbell Soup Co. as finance chief having served at US-based Greek yogurt maker Chobani in the same role for the past three years.

Campbell’s current chief financial officer Anthony DiSilvestro is leaving the business on 15 October to “pursue other interests”, ending his five-year stint as CFO at the meals-to-sauces maker, according to a statement today (29 August).

Meanwhile, Beekhuizen will join New York-listed Campbell on the last day of September, and will also hold the position of senior vice president. As well as finance, he will also lead functions in tax, treasury, audit, investor relations, corporate financial planning and the company’s IT group.  

At Chobani, the incoming CFO was also executive vice president, holding that dual role with the finance chief position since 2016. Has has previously worked for Education Management Corp. and investment bank Goldman Sachs.

Campbell’s CEO and president Mark Clouse, who himself only joined the firm seven months ago, said: “Mick’s background and experience in leading publicly-traded and private food companies will serve Campbell well as we set the company on a course to deliver sustainable, profitable growth and create shareholder value.”
