Birds Eye owner Iglo Group named Elio Leoni Sceti as its new CEO, after Martin Glenn announced his resignation earlier this year.
Sceti’s appointment will be effected 23 May. Interim CEO Erhard Schoewel will revert back to his position as non-executive chairman.
Sceti has more than 20 years of experience in the FMCG and media industries, serving as CEO of EMI Music until 2010. He also had an international career in marketing and held senior leadership roles at Procter & Gamble and Reckitt Benckiser. He currently serves as chairman of Zeebox and advisor to the board of Anheuser-Busch Inbev as well as a counselor of One Young World.
“I am delighted to welcome Elio to Iglo Group. He has an impressive record of encouraging innovation and accelerating top line growth at world class consumer businesses and brands. Specifically Elio managed and extended an innovation machine at Reckitt Benckiser,” said Schoewel. “From many years of working together at Reckitt Benckiser I know that he has the right credentials for the job. The Iglo Group Board believes that the frozen food category has huge potential for significant growth and to this end has agreed to invest in the business at record levels. We believe Elio’s experience and track record will lead Iglo Group to realize its growth ambitions in existing and new markets.”
