06/12/2018

CHIEF MARKETING & CUSTOMER OFFICER ANDREW CLARKE TO REPLACE MARTIN RADVAN

Today, we announced that Andrew Clarke, currently Chief Marketing & Customer Officer, will replace Martin Radvan as the Global President of Mars Wrigley Confectionery in September.

Andrew has been our Chief Marketing & Customer Officer since 2015. In this role, he has led Mars’ marketing and sales capabilities, including the development of an integrated strategy that leverages our powerful brands while building strong relationships with our global customers. He joined Mars in the U.K. in 2000 as Category Leadership Director for Mars Chocolate and since then has built leadership experience and responsibility through a wide range of general management roles spanning across the Chocolate, Petcare and Food segments. He has led geographic operations at country level in the U.K. and Ireland and was Regional President for Petcare in Latin America from 2011 to 2014.

Andrew is thrilled about the opportunity to lead the segment, which is more than 34,000 Associates strong. "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,” says Andrew.

Clarke replaces Martin Radvan, who is retiring after a 32-year career with Mars that extended across multiple functions, business segments and countries. Martin has led the integration of the Mars Chocolate and Wrigley segments 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. 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,” says Grant F. Reid, CEO of Mars, Incorporated. “Andrew brings great global perspective, combined with a principled approach to leadership and passion for engaging and inspiring teams.”
