Mars Wrigley Confectionery has a new global president.
Andrew Clarke, currently serving as chief marketing and customer officer, will succeed Martin Radvan in September. Radvan is retiring after 32 years with the company.
Clarke joined Mars Wrigley in 2000, assuming his current role in 2015. In this position, Clarke has led Mars’ marketing and sales capabilities, including the development of an integrated strategy that leverages its brands while building strong relationships with global customers.
"I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead this iconic business with some of the world’s most loved brands and to drive growth with our talented associates, customers and partners,” Clarke said.
Radvan led the integration of the Mars Chocolate and Wrigley divisions into Mars Wrigley Confectionery, the world’s leading manufacturer of chocolate, chewing gum, mints, and fruity confections.
“Andrew is the right person to lead Mars Wrigley Confectionery into its next chapter,” says Grant F. Reid, ceo of Mars, Inc. “His track record for driving ambitious change while delivering results is the fuel our business needs to thrive in an ever-changing consumer and retail landscape. Andrew brings great global perspective, combined with a principled approach to leadership and passion for engaging and inspiring teams.”
