Procter & Gamble has appointed Mondelez executive, Gerry D'Angelo as its new global media director, making him the company's second high-profile departure after its global media chief Bonin Bough left last month.

D'Angelo, currently the top European media executive for Mondelez International, will take up the newly created role of global media director at P&G and will report to vice president of VP-worldwide brand operations Doreen Bayliff, according to Adage.

The move is part of P&G’s promise to hire more talent from outside the company and will see D'Angelo oversee the world’s biggest media budget. For the fiscal year ending June 2015, the US multinational consumer goods company spent $7.2bn on advertising, which represents 11 per cent of its $65.3bn in global sales.
