Title: Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer

Company: Mondelez International, Deerfield, Ill.

Key HR Challenges: To integrate workforces after acquiring U.K.-based chocolate-maker Cadbury; to restructure and divide the workforce with the 2012 spinoff of the North American grocery business, now called The Kraft Heinz Co.; to develop a vision and employee value proposition for Mondelez International; to fill leadership posts across the company.

Key HR Accomplishments: In addition to personnel moves required by the acquisition and spinoff, oversaw the creation of a centralized learning-and-development operation called Mondelez International University under the constraint of a company move to zero-based budgeting.
