Premier Foods has announced the appointment of Roisin Donnelly as an independent non-executive director of the company from 1 May.
The company’s decision comes after Pam Powell’s retirement after serving on the board for nine years – first as a remuneration committee chair and later as a non-executive director at the end of her third term of appointment.
Donnelly has previously worked at Procter and Gamble where she was responsible for a large portfolio of leading brands across the UK, Europe and the Americas.

Before leaving the company in 2016, Donnelly served as 12 years as chief marketing officer for UK and Ireland, and two years in the same role for Northern Europe.
Currently, she is the non-executive director of HomeServe and a member of the Digital Advisory Board of Coca-Cola Europacific Partners.
“I am delighted that Roisin will be joining the Board. She brings with her a wealth of highly relevant consumer marketing, brand building and digital experience, both in the UK and internationally,” Premier Foods chairman Colin Day said.
“I welcome her to the Board as we continue to pursue our branded growth strategy and path to further value creation.”
Day added: “I would like to thank Pan for her valuable contribution to the Board over the last nine years, the part she has played in the Company’s successful turnaround and for her support as Chair of the Remuneration Committee.”
