Paul has built a talented team around him and leaves behind an organization that has made great strides, as evidenced by our return to organic revenue growth and recently raised revenue, EBITDA and cash flow guidance for 2017.”
Mr. Kenyon said, “My tenure at Nomad Foods has been extremely rewarding on both a professional and personal level. I am proud of our many accomplishments, particularly the last two years as we listed on the NYSE, integrated the acquisition of Findus and laid a foundation for long-term sustainable growth. I look forward to seeing the company execute against strategic plans while, in the near-term, building on the strong top-line momentum it has experienced thus far in 2017.”
