CAMDEN, NJ -- Campbell Soup Co. has named Irene Chang Britt president of Pepperidge Farm. She succeeds Pat Callaghan, who stepped down after more than 30 years with the company.

Britt, 49, is the first woman to lead Pepperidge Farm since company founder Margaret Rudkin presided over the business from 1937 to 1966. Pepperidge Farm was acquired by Campbell in 1961.

In addition to leading Pepperidge Farm, Britt oversees Campbell's global baking and snacking businesses. Pepperidge Farm, which includes Goldfish crackers, Milano cookies and Farmhouse breads, represents a large part of Campbell's baking and snack business.

Britt joined Campbell in 2005, most recently serving as senior vice-president and chief strategy officer after advancing from president of its North American foodservice business. Before joining Campbell, Britt spent eight years with Kraft Foods, including positions as senior vice-president and general manager of its salted snacks division and Post cereal divisions.
