Cadbury is parting company with long-standing marketing executive Peter Creighton, who is retiring from the business after 35 years.
Creighton has held a number of senior marketing roles at Kraft-owned Cadbury, which he joined back in 1977.
He has latterly held the role of marketing activation director, a UK focused role in which he looked after a number of Cadbury's flagship brands, along with its licensing.
Creighton spent the first seven years of his time at Cadbury working in sales roles, before making the switch to marketing.
He held senior marketing roles across Cadbury's chocolate portfolios, including working on its flagship Dairy Milk brand.
In his current role, he reported to Luca Miggiano, category vice-president for chocolate for Kraft UK. Ireland and Nordics.
Part of Creighton’s responsibility will be given to Guillaume Brochen, category vice-president for chocolate for Kraft UK, Ireland and Nordics.
