A food maker in the region has named a new chief financial officer.
Fareed Khan will join Battle Creek-based Kellogg Company as CFO and principal financial officer beginning Feb. 17.
Khan will succeed current CFO Ron Dissinger, who will remain with the company in 2017 to ensure an orderly transition.
Khan joins Kellogg from US Foods Holding Corp., where he has been CFO since 2013 and successfully led the company's initial public offering last year.
Previously, Khan served as SVP and CFO at United Stationers.
He has spent 12 years at USG Corporation in a variety of finance, business and leadership roles, including EVP of finance and strategy, president and CEO of USG Building Systems and EVP of sales and marketing.
Khan's experience also includes several years at McKinsey & Company as a management consultant in the U.S. and Europe.
John Bryant, Kellogg chairman and CEO, said Khan is a “proven business leader” with “deep expertise” and a “diverse background.”
"Having served in finance leadership, as well as commercial and operational roles, Fareed will play a critical role in driving our 2020 growth plan and 350-basis point margin expansion goal,” Bryant said. “We look forward to welcoming him to the Kellogg team."
