Camden, N.J.-based Campbell Soup Co. has appointed Mark Alexander as president—Campbell North America. Alexander, 47, will lead the division of the company that includes Campbell’s North America soup, sauces and beverages business, Campbell Canada, and Campbell’s North America foodservice business, which collectively account for approximately $4.6 billion in annual revenue. His appointment is effective Jan. 16.

Denise Morrison, Campbell’s president and CEO, said, “Mark is an outstanding executive with a proven track record of success in critical management roles at Campbell, including the management of soup businesses in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. He was instrumental to the development of our company’s new strategic framework and has close familiarity with the Campbell North America business and its leadership team. During a career at Campbell that has spanned more than two decades, Mark has delivered consistently strong performance and demonstrated exemplary leadership skills. I am confident that, under his leadership, Campbell North America will maintain its strong progress in stabilizing and then profitably growing U.S. Soup and Simple Meals, and continue to advance the consumer-driven innovation and brand-building initiatives that are now well under way across our North American businesses.”
