“We are confident that we will attract a world-class executive to lead our talented Snacks management team and continue to grow this differentiated portfolio of brands,” said Clouse in a statement. “We thank Carlos for his significant contributions during his five years at Campbell.”
Abrams-Rivera joined Campbell in September 2015 and became executive vice president and president of Campbell Snacks in April 2019.
