Mondelēz International has appointed Karla Schlieper president of Mondelēz Canada, effective Jan. 17, 2022, succeeding Martin Parent, who will be leaving the organization in early January.

Schlieper has successfully led the Mondelēz business in Latin America’s Southern Cone region (Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay). In that position, which she has held since May 2019, Schlieper led a substantial turnaround of the business, against a challenging backdrop of the pandemic and in a volatile economy and demanding business climate.

Schlieper joined Mondelēz International in 2013. Within Mondelēz, she has held a number of different roles, including director of powdered beverages, Brazil; category director, Biscuits, Brazil; equity director and vice-president for Latin America Biscuits. Schlieper played an important role in the implementation of a new operating model in Latin America, establishing new ways of working and integrating and enhancing key business processes, Mondelēz said in a news release.
