Pool joins KFC
KFC UK and Ireland has announced the appointment of Monica Pool as its new chief marketing officer (CMO). She will be taking over from chief corporate affairs and sustainability officer Jenny Packwood, who has been interim CMO since the departure of Jack Hinchliffe earlier this year.
Pool is no stranger to the business, having started her journey with KFC South Africa in 2009. She joins from her role as marketing director for Taco Bell UK and Europe.
Pool said: “I’m honoured to be rejoining KFC UK&I to partner with our incredible teams, franchisees and restaurant leaders. It’s an exciting time as we continue our journey to evolve the brand experience to deliver industry-leading results, all while making a positive impact on the communities we serve.”
Meghan Farren, general manager of KFC UK and Ireland, added: “The entire KFC team in the UK and Ireland are thrilled to announce Monica's appointment as our new CMO. A hugely talented marketer with a wealth of experience in our business, she’s the perfect person to lead our brand and marketing function.”
