BATTLE CREEK, Mich. - Kellogg Company today announced that it has promoted David Mackay to president and chief operating officer. In this newly created position, Mackay will be responsible for both the U.S. and International divisions, reporting directly to Carlos M. Gutierrez, chairman and CEO.
Prior to this promotion, Mackay had been executive vice president, Kellogg Company and president, Kellogg USA, in charge of the company's U.S. division since 2000. During his 26-year business career, he has worked in management and marketing positions in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and Asia.
"This is a natural organizational move that comes at a time when our business is performing very well," Gutierrez said.

The chief operating officer position assumes responsibility for day-to-day operations of our businesses worldwide, allowing me to focus on broader strategic issues and our goal of long-term sustainable growth."
Reporting directly to Mackay will be Alan Harris, executive VP, Kellogg Company and president, Kellogg International; Brad Davidson, president, U.S. Snacks; Dave Pfanzelter, president, U.S. Food Away From Home; Mark Wagner, senior VP and general manager, Warehouse Club and Retail Specialty Brands; and Kevin Smith, senior VP, U.S. Marketing Services.
