'Sincere Thanks'

"On behalf of our Board of Directors and our Executive Board, I would like to offer our sincere thanks to François," commented Nestlé chief executive Mark Schneider.

"At the same time, we are thrilled to welcome Anna Manz to Nestlé. Anna has spent her career growing businesses and improving operational efficiencies. Her deep knowledge of the consumer goods industry, combined with her extensive experience across many corporate functions, make her uniquely positioned to help lead Nestlé into its next phase of value creation."
