Executives

Irene Rosenfeld, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
With nearly 30 years of experience in the food and beverage industry, Irene Rosenfeld drives business results by understanding consumer needs, constantly innovating and making truly delicious foods.
Irene came home to Kraft Foods in June 2006 as CEO and became Chairman in March 2007, following the company's spin off from Altria Group. Since then, Irene has fundamentally changed the face, footprint and prospects of Kraft Foods. She has successfully repositioned the company to deliver consistent top-tier growth by reinvigorating iconic brands, transforming the portfolio and strengthening the company's presence in fast-growing developing markets. The 2011 decision to create two independent public companies – a high-margin North American Grocery business and a high-growth Global Snacks business – is the next exciting step in the company's evolution. Irene will lead the Global Snacks business as Chairman and CEO following the spin-off in 2012.
Irene began her career in consumer research, then joined General Foods, which later became part of Kraft Foods. Irene led the restructuring and turnaround of key businesses in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. She served on the team that spearheaded the company's IPO in 2001, and successfully integrated the Nabisco, LU and Cadbury businesses.
Irene took a short break from Kraft Foods in 2004, serving for two years as Chairman and CEO of Frito-Lay. While there, she accelerated growth in better-for-you products and health and wellness offerings.
The Financial Times and Fortune recently ranked Irene No. 1 on their “Top 50 Women in Global Business” and “50 Most Powerful Women in Business” lists, respectively. Forbes has named Irene as one of the world’s “100 Most Powerful Women” for several years.
Irene holds a Ph.D. in Marketing and Statistics, an MS in Business Administration and a BA in Psychology – all from Cornell University. She is active in a number of industry and community organizations, including The Economic Club of Chicago. She also serves on the Grocery Manufacturers Association Board of Directors and Cornell's Board of Trustees.

Tim Cofer, Executive Vice President and President, Kraft Foods Europe
Timothy P. Cofer joined Kraft Foods in 1992. In his role as Executive Vice President and President, Kraft Foods Europe, he leads the company's $12 Billion European business, based in Zurich, Switzerland.
During his career at Kraft Foods, Tim has progressed through a number of roles of increasing responsibility. Most recently, he held strategic responsibility for the company's $9+ billion chocolate business as Senior Vice President, Global Chocolate Category Team. In this role, he led a team of global executives across strategy, innovation, consumer insights, marketing, research & development and supply chain functions.
Prior to this global chocolate position, Tim served as Senior Vice President, Strategy and Integration, leading global integration efforts following the company's acquisition of Cadbury in early 2010. This complex assignment required him to lead the detailed work of combining the two organizations. Tim was the architect of the company's European chocolate category model (2003-2006). His career has also included successful tenures leading the Oscar Mayer business (2007) and the company's U.S. pizza business (2008-2010), where he delivered significant revenue growth, margin expansion and consistent market share gains.
