Nomad appoints new CEO for seafood company Iglo

Stéfan Descheemaeker will replace Elio Leoni Sceti as the new CEO of United Kingdom-based Iglo Group.

Nomad Holdings, which recently acquired Iglo, announced it would be appointing Descheemaeker, effective upon the closing of the acquisition expected in the second quarter of this year.

Prior to Iglo, Descheemaeker served as chief financial officer at Delhaize Group, and later served as CEO of its European division. He also worked for Belgium-based Interbrew, overseeing that company’s merger with AmBev to create international brewing company InBev. He has held a position of non-executive director on the board of Anheuser-Busch InBev since 2008.

"Stéfan's background aligns with our aspirations to create a leading, global consumer foods company,” said Noam Gottesman, Nomad's co-founder. “He possesses a rare combination of food retailing and fast-moving consumer goods experience as well as a honed expertise in corporate M&A strategy.”

Descheemaeker will oversee day-to-day operations of the group, which produces frozen products under brands including Birds Eye.

"I could not be more excited to join Nomad at the onset of its growth story,” Descheemaeker said. “The initial investment in Iglo Group creates a solid foundation for us in the consumer foods space. Iglo Group's brands evoke a strong sense of nostalgia for me, and I am personally looking forward to working with the talented teams to promote growth and innovation in the frozen foods category."
