MEXICO CITY — Grupo Bimbo S.A.B. de C.V. has announced a change at the top of its global marketing executive lineup. Alfonso Argudin has been promoted to vice-president of global marketing. Paco Casa, the company’s chief marketing officer, is leaving Bimbo in January.

In his new position, Mr. Argudin will report to Pablo Elizondo, executive vice-president of Grupo Bimbo.

Since May 2014, Mr. Argudin held the title of commercial vice-president – brand manager for bread and pastries at Grupo Bimbo. He joined the company in 2009 as a marketing manager and a year later was named national sales director – modern channel.

Mr. Casa had been with Grupo Bimbo as c.m.o. for three years. Before that, he was c.m.o. for Bimbo Iberia, a business acquired by Grupo Bimbo in late 2011. For 11 years before that, Mr. Casa held numerous positions at Sara Lee Corp. (and then Hillshire Brands, which was a Sara Lee spin-off) in Europe, including marketing director for the global brand Ambi Pur, a house fragrances business, and president of the Kiwi shoe polish business.
