Kraft Foods, Northfield, Ill., named Daniel Myers as executive vice president, supply chain, responsible for leading the functional groups that make up the company's integrated supply chain, including procurement, manufacturing, engineering, customer service and logistics. He succeeds David Brearton, who is now executive vice president and chief financial officer. Myers will report to Irene Rosenfeld, chairman and CEO.

"Daniel has extensive experience driving cost savings across complex global supply chains – in food, beverages and many other products," says Rosenfeld. "This expertise will complement our current end-to-end cost management initiatives, including Project SAVOR in procurement and Lean Six Sigma in manufacturing. I'm confident that Daniel's leadership can accelerate efficiencies in our operations, which fuels our virtuous growth cycle."

Myers joins Kraft Foods from Procter & Gamble, Cincinnati, where he spent 33 years working through the ranks. Most recently, he served as vice president, product supply, where he led the supply chain function for P&G's global hair care business, and coordinated responsibilities for the $28 billion beauty and grooming business, including manufacturing operations that supported sales in more than 170 countries. In that role, he led a "reinvention" of the company's global hair care supply chain, tripling the unit's annual cost savings in three years. In addition, Myers maintains broad international experience, having worked in every category in the P&G portfolio and in 49 countries.
