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.
