Blog: Dean BestKellogg's management changes

Dean Best | 24 July 2007

Kellogg has raised eyebrows with the decision to ask two of its key executives to swap roles.

The world’s largest cereal maker asked CFO John Bryant to move from his other role as head of the company’s international business and oversee its North American operations.

Jeffrey Montie, meanwhile, will head in the opposite direction and head up Kellogg’s international business. Both men will report to president and CEO David Mackay.

Kellogg has been quick to dismiss suggestions that the moves were due to problems one either side of the business.

However, such moves do tend to come when a company wants a change in direction. Either that, or perhaps Bryant and Montie are being groomed as possible successors to replace Mackay in the top job at some point down the road?
