ConAgra Foods has appointed former Kellog man King Pouw as senior vice president of business transformation at the company.

He will work with executive vice president and chief administrative officer Owen Johnson to devise common, cost-effective processes across the packaged food company.

Formerly, Pouw directed manufacturing, engineering, procurement, research and development, and information technology at Kellogg for over 25 years.

ConAgra Foods president and CEO Gary Rodkin said: “King Pouw is a proven leader in improving processes and productivity, reducing costs, improving cash flow and adding shareholder value.

“Our opportunities for efficiency and cost reduction require common approaches, and King’s role will be pivotal in supporting ConAgra Foods’ sustainable, profitable growth.”
