Premier Foods today announces that, following the appointment of Gavin Darby as Chief Executive Officer with effect from 4th February, 2013, a flatter executive management structure has been implemented, that will enable commercial and functional management to report directly to the CEO.

As a consequence of this new structure, the role of Chief Operating Officer will cease to exist. It has therefore been agreed with Geoff Eaton, current Chief Operating Officer that he will step down from the Board of Directors with immediate effect and will leave the Company.

Commenting on the change, Gavin Darby said: “I would like to thank Geoff for his contribution to the Company and wish him well in his future career. I very much look forward to working with the management team to continue the transformation of Premier Foods.”
