Patrick Gantier, general manager, Wrigley Pacific, commented, “At Wrigley we recognise that our Associates are our most valuable asset and essential to our continued growth and success. We are delighted with Alison’s promotion and to welcome her to the Leadership Team.

“Alison’s experience, energy and creativity have played a significant role in our growth strategy for the Pacific Business. Her appointment is testament to her strong ability to collaborate and the results she has delivered across a number of key portfolio and category projects.”
