Food technology and ingredients company Kerry Group has announced two changes to its senior management team today. 

Gavin Caplis has been appointed Chief Strategy Officer for the group and Malcolm Sheil has been appointed as Chief Commercial Officer of Kerry's Taste and Nutrition business.

Over the past 20 years, Gavin Caplis has held a variety of senior roles across Europe and North America, all focused on strategy, acquisitions and divestitures, before taking up his most recent role as Director of Business Development in 2009. 

He has overseen global M&A strategy for the Group as Kerry evolved from a dairy corporative to co-creation partner with the world's leading food companies.

Malcolm Sheil has worked with Kerry for more than 30 years across three regions and has been leading the European Region as Regional CEO since 2016, having previously led the Latin America Region. 

In his new role, he will oversee the commercial and marketing strategy for the organisation across the countries in which Kerry operates and will continue as CEO for the Europe region until the end of the year.
