Scott O’Hara will be executive vice-president, president and c.e.o. of Heinz North America. He was previously executive vice-president, vice-president and c.e.o. of Heinz Europe.

Chris Warmoth will continue as executive vice-president of Asia/Pacific, but his role recently expanded to include Australia and New Zealand.

Mike Milone will continue as senior vice-president for the rest of the world in global infant nutrition and enterprise risk management. He is also responsible for expanding global enterprise risk management and sustainability initiatives.

Art Winkleblack will continue as executive vice-president and chief financial officer, but his current role will expand with the global Keystone initiative designed to improve Heinz’s processes and systems.

The changes in management are effective July 15.

"Heinz has an exceptionally strong and deep executive leadership team, as these five executives have demonstrated in leading the company to a year of record sales and profit in fiscal 2009," said William R. Johnson, chairman, president and c.e.o. "I look forward to working with these talented executives in the years ahead as we build on the strong momentum and growth Heinz has achieved over the last three years."
