As debt mounts and sales slump, The Kraft Heinz Company is hoping a new chief can help lead the company in a different direction.
On Monday, Kraft Heinz announced that its chief executive officer, Bernardo Hees, is stepping down. Miguel Patricio, former chief marketing officer for Anheuser-Busch InBev, will take over the position effective June 30.
The company touted Patricio’s career accomplishments as it announced the change.
“Miguel is a proven business leader with a distinguished track record of building iconic consumer brands around the globe, driving top-line revenue growth through a focus on consumer-first marketing, innovation, and people development,” said Alex Behring, Chairman of Kraft Heinz’s Board of Directors.
