Kellogg’s CEO to retire

David Mackay has announced he will be retiring from his positions as chief executive officer, president and director of the Kellogg Company on 1 January 2011.

Kellogg’s Chief Operating Officer John Bryant will take Mr Mackay’s position as the new president and CEO. Mr Bryant joined Kellogg’s in 1998 and served as chief financial officer from 2002 to 2004 as well as from 2006 to 2009, and assumed his current role of chief operating officer in 2008.

Mr Mackay has been at Kellogg for the past 20 years and as the CEO at the company for the past four years. He said his decision to retire was based on personal reasons.

“This past summer, I became eligible to retire and made a commitment to spend more time with my family,” Mr Mackay said. “I am pleased to pass the baton to John, whose management capabilities and wealth of experience has prepared him well to drive our business agenda for 2011 and beyond."
