Biography

Appointed Executive Vice President and President of Mondelēz Europe in September 2013, Hubert Weber is responsible for Mondelēz International’s largest region by sales, encompassing 33 countries and around 33,000 employees and generating approximately USD 14 billion in annual revenues.  Between 2010 and 2013, Hubert led the European and Global Coffee category for Mondelēz International, overseeing the expansion of the Tassimo multi-beverage system and new product launches such as Millicano whole-bean instant coffee. Under his tenure, the Coffee category grew by around 5% annually, propelled by around 25% year-on-year growth in Tassimo. The category fully embraced the trend among European consumers for on-demand coffee and realized its ambition to become a truly global business, with an 11% share of the global market and the number two global market position. Hubert has chaired the European Coffee Federation since 2011. Prior to his role in Coffee, Hubert led a successful turnaround of the key DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) during his tenure as President DACH between 2009 and 2010 and was Managing Director Spain from 2007 to 2009. During his 25-year career with the company he has been responsible for sales strategy in global and regional roles, and has worked in seven European countries, as well as the United States. A passionate advocate for Mondelēz International’s sustainable agriculture agenda, Hubert was the architect of the company’s industry-leading commitment that by 2015, all the coffee beans used in its multiple brands in Europe would be sustainably sourced. In 2012, Hubert launched a multi-year USD 200 million commitment to coffee, called Coffee Made Happy that builds on the sustainable coffee sourcing commitment and aims to create one million coffee entrepreneurs by the year 2020. Alongside his dedication to sustainability, Hubert’s focus on people and teams has prompted his ongoing campaign for a radical simplification of processes and systems in the European business, calling for the organization to “keep it simple” and to free up resources to focus on the essentials. A graduate in economics and business, Hubert studied at the University of Stuttgart-Hohenheim. Married with two children, his passion for food extends to his private interest in cooking and entertaining. He lives in Zurich
