Brenda joined CPLG Benelux in 2011 as Retail and Marketing Director, having previously held roles at food giant Deoleo (formerly Grupo SOS), Orangina Schweppes and Mattel.

She will report in to Maarten Weck, who was recently named Executive Vice President and Managing Director of CPLG, and praises Brenda for being “instrumental” in the growth of CPLG brands across the region she now heads up.
