Mondelēz International Names Luca Zaramella as Chief Financial Officer
With more than 20 years of broad financial experience has an intimate knowledge of the company’s business
Mondelēz International selects Senior VP of Corporate Finance Luca Zaramella to take over the CFO position on August 1. The company says Zaramella, reporting directly to CEO Dirk Van de Put, will be responsible for the oversight of its global finance, IT solutions and shared services functions.
Zaramella replaces Brian Gladden, who has decided to pursue an opportunity outside of the "fast moving" consumer goods sector.
“Luca is a strong financial and strategic leader who possesses deep knowledge of our commercial business at a local level around the world, and deep financial expertise,” said Van de Put. “He has been developed to take on this role for many years and has been closely involved in the development of our new strategic framework. I feel fortunate to have such an experienced executive move seamlessly into the CFO role, and I’m excited to partner with him as we deliver on our new long-term strategy and drive shareholder value creation”.
With more than 20 years of broad financial experience in both emerging and developed markets, and a track record of delivering strong results, Zaramella has an intimate knowledge of the company’s business across products, markets, operations, competitors and customers. Over the past four years, Luca has assumed a range of responsibilities to prepare him for this role, including Corporate Controller, Treasurer and global head of Financial Planning & Analysis. Zaramella has served as Mondelēz International’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Finance since 2016 and was the Senior Vice President and Corporate Controller from 2014 to 2016. Prior to that, he was Senior Vice President, Finance of Mondelez Europe. He began his career with the company in Italy before holding positions of increasing seniority in Latin America, Europe and North America.
