Kellogg’s EMEA legal head takes new role at Archer Daniels Midland

Kellogg’s EMEA legal head Orla Muldoon is leaving to join agricultural processing giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) in January.

Muldoon has been chief counsel and director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa since joining the Kellogg Company in 2007.

Before moving to the food giant, she spent time in-house at Atlantic Industries – a subsidiary of Coca Cola – having previously worked at Irish firms Matheson and McCann Fitzgerald.

In her new role as ADM’s chief counsel for EMEA, Muldoon will relocate from Dublin to Rolle in Switzerland.

She will report to the company’s senior vice president, general counsel and secretary Cam Findlay, who joined the business in July 2013. He previously held the same role at medical device manufacturer Medtronic since 2009, and served as executive vice president and general counsel at Aon Corporation from 2003.

Findlay also worked as deputy assistant to President George H.W. Bush, and as a law clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia at the Supreme Court.

Kellogg’s in-house counsel Marcus Knopp is thought to be taking over the EMEA chief role from Muldoon.

Last year, Kellogg acquired Pringles crisps for $2.7bn (£1.7bn), instructing Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz as its legal adviser (16 February 2012).
