The head of Heineken has been appointed to the board of Kraft Foods.

The US-based firm, which owns brands including Kraft cheese, Maxwell House coffee and Toblerone chocolate, said yesterday (17 December) that Jean-Francois van Boxmeer will join its board at the beginning of next year.

Van Boxmeer will be joined by another new recruit, Mackey McDonald, a senior advisor at Crestview Partners.

With these additions, Kraft Foods' board will have 12 directors, 11 of whom are independent.

"Jean-Francois and Mackey will be terrific additions to our board as we continue to build on our position as a global powerhouse in snacks, confectionery and quick meals," said Irene Rosenfeld, Kraft's chairman and CEO.

"Jean-Francois is known as a builder of iconic, global brands with a strong track record for driving revenue growth and leading acquisitions and integrations."
