CAMDEN, N.J. — Campbell Soup Co. is realigning its North American business in an effort to streamline management structure.
The U.S. Soup, Sauces and Beverages retail business, the North American Foodservice and StockPot, and the Canadian business will now be known as North America Soup, Sauces and Beverages. These units had sales of about $4.5 billion last year.
Denise Morrison has been appointed as president of North America Soup, Sauces and Beverages. She was previously president of Campbell U.S.A.
"Denise Morrison has provided excellent leadership as president of Campbell U.S.A., and prior to that as our chief customer officer," said Douglas Conant, president and chief executive officer. "I am confident that Denise will continue to drive strong marketplace and workplace performance in her new and expanded leadership role."
The Pepperidge Farm and Godiva Chocolatier businesses will report directly to Mr. Conant under the new structure.
Additionally, Mark Sarvary, executive vice-president and president of Campbell North America, will be leaving the company. Mr. Sarvary has been in his current position since 2004, and he joined the company in 2002 as president of Pepperidge Farm.
