Luis Cantarell, who headed up €500m+ food-pharma crossover research centre Nestlé Health Science when it launched in 2010, is retiring after 40 years at the Swiss food giant.

The Spaniard​ will end his current position as executive vice president and head of Europe, Middle East and North Africa at the end of the year and be replaced by Marco Settembri,​ the Italian EVP and head of Nestlé Waters.

Maurizio Patarnello​, market head of Nestlé Russia and Eurasia will become deputy executive VP and head of Nestlé Waters from 1 January.

Nestlé said it was changing its Nestlé Food Professional food service management structure from global to regional “due to increasing demand for more customised products and services on a local and regional basis often linked with developments in the in-home business.”
