WASHINGTON: Kraft Foods announced that Perry Yeatman, SVP of corporate affairs, will move to the Washington office, with the government and public affairs team in that office reporting to her.
The decision to move from Chicago to Washington was a personal one, said Yeatman, but Kraft saw a need for the company to take a more active role there. The company has 14 public affairs staffers in the Washington office. Brian Folkerts, VP of government affairs at Kraft, will continue to lead the office and will report to Yeatman.
She also said that she plans to hire someone to take some of her responsibilities in Northfield, IL. The move will be effective this fall.
