CAMDEN, N.J. — Gareth Edgecombe has been named president of the Asia Pacific Region at Campbell Soup Co. He will be responsible for the Australian, Asian and Pacific operations of the company, including Arnott’s biscuits and Campbell’s soup.

“Gareth is a highly experienced executive with a strong background in marketing, sales and general management,” said Mark Alexander, president of Campbell International. “His track record of building sales and equity across a range of brands will add tremendous value as we continue to focus on our three core categories for global growth — baked snacks, healthy beverages and simple meals.”

Mr. Edgecombe will begin his role on Aug. 8 and will be based in Sydney. He has nearly 20 years of experience in consumer packaged goods, most recently being president of The Coca-Cola Co.’s South Pacific business unit.
