business news in context, analysis with attitude

Advertising Age reports that "Mondelez International hired two outsiders with plenty of consumer packaged goods experience to run its media and digital team and its e-commerce business as the snack maker looks for ways to operate both operations more effectively."

The company has hired Bob Rupczynski,most recently of Kraft heinz, to be head of global media and digital. And Jeff Jarrett, formerly of Kimberly-Clark, has joined Mondelez as VP-global head of e-commerce.

The goal, the story says, is to move e-commerce and digital "out from under the marketing umbrella."
