Ferrero has offered a note of thanks to former senior executive Paul Chibe, who had until recently headed the company’s American division, who has now moved to take up a post as CEO of US brewing business Pabst, reports Neill Barston.
He had risen to become chairman of the board of trustees for the country’s National Confectioners Association, having gained a number of years experience with major confectionery brand.

He has taken up the post of CEO at Texas-based Pabst, which has a strong heritage in the brewing trade, dating back to the 1850s.
Ferrero issued a short statement thanking him for his work with the business. It read: “Paul Chibe’s leadership made a great impact on Ferrero. We thank him and wish him luck in his new role.”
