Iglo Group, the owner of Birds Eye, has named Elio Leoni Sceti as its new chief executive. The 47-year-old Italian is best known for his shortlived role as chief executive of EMI Music, which he left after 18 months, just weeks after EMI's parent posted a £1.75bn annual pre-tax loss.

Before EMI, Mr Leoni Sceti's career was focused on consumer goods, including spells at Procter & Gamble and Reckitt Benckiser. He will combine his new role with his current jobs chairing the screen business Zeebox and advising Anheuser-Busch InBev.
