Kim Rucker, Avon Product Inc.’s senior vice president, general counsel, corporate secretary and chief compliance officer, will become executive vice president of corporate and legal affairs at Kraft Foods North America on Aug. 17.
She will also become Kraft’s general counsel and corporate secretary and a member of the management team when the company is spun off later this year.
“We thank Kim for her leadership, commitment and many important contributions to Avon,” said Sheri McCoy, chief executive officer of Avon. “We wish her the best in her new role at Kraft as she and her family return to her hometown of Chicago.”
Avon will begin an external search for a new general counsel. McCoy and Rucker will create an interim transition plan for leadership of the company’s global legal organization until a successor is named. Rucker had been with Avon since 2008.
