Mondelēz International, Inc announced the appointment of Stephanie Lilak as executive vice president and chief people officer, effective January 15.

Lilak has succeeded Paulette Alviti to this position who will retire in April 2024 following a transition period, after five-and-a-half years with the company.

In her new role, Lilak will be responsible for oversight of the company’s human resources function worldwide, including talent management, leadership and capability development, compensation and benefits, change management, and employee relations, as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion.

She will report directly to Dirk Van de Put, chairman and chief executive officer, and will be a member of the Mondelēz International Leadership Team. 

Lilak is joining the company with experience across multiple industries. She grew her career at General Mills, spending 23 years in human resources leadership roles including sales, operations, and international positions. As CHRO at Dunkin Brands, Lilak led several impactful talent, organization and cultural initiatives that supported the growth of the company and its people.

“As a two-time public-company CHRO with experience across multiple industries, Stephanie will bring us deep expertise, passion and fresh perspective. We’re excited to welcome her – and to thank Paulette for her leadership, while celebrating her many accomplishments in advancing our people and culture agendas. We know she will continue to #snackright as a consumer for many years to come!,” reads a LinkedIn post by Mondelēz.

“Having a winning growth culture, anchored by engaged talent, future-focused capabilities, and diversity, equity, and inclusion, is a critical part of our current and future success as an organization,” Van de Put said.

“After spending the majority of my more than 30-year career working in Food, the opportunity to lead people and culture development for such a dynamic global company with a portfolio of iconic snacking brands is very exciting,” Lilak said. “I look forward to working with Dirk and the leadership team to build on the company’s great momentum in pursuing an exciting long-term vision.”

She is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, where she received her undergraduate degree in Psychology and her Master’s degree in industrial relations.
