Kerry Group has announced the appointment of Nick Robinson as the new Chief Executive Officer of Kerry Foods.

Robinson, who is the current Managing Director of Consumer Brands for Kerry Foods, will transition into the role over the next two months. The announcement follows the decision by Duncan Everett to leave the company after 25 years to take up a new role in the coming months.

After joining Kerry Foods in 2017 as Chief Marketing Officer, Robinson assumed the role of Managing Director Brands in January 2019, where he has led the growth agenda in the company’s branded business. Prior to Kerry, he held a variety of sales, commercial and marketing roles with Diageo, Coca-Cola and AB InBev.

Commenting on the appointment, Kerry Group CEO Edmond Scanlon said: “I would like to congratulate Nick on this new role with the company. He is stepping into this role at a very interesting time as the food industry responds in innovative ways to the changing consumer behaviours resulting from Covid-19.”
