Hostess Brands has promoted Darryl Riley to the new position of chief sustainability officer.

Riley joined Hostess in 2016 as senior vice president for quality, food safety and R&D. In his new role, he will oversee execution of Hostess’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives and initiatives. He will report directly to CEO Andy Callahan. The ESG duties that had been handled by Mike Cramer, executive vice president and chief administrative officer, will be transferred to Riley.

Before working for Hostess, Riley worked for several food companies, including Kraft Heinz and Kellogg. He has a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

“With his deep industry expertise and operational experience, Darryl is the ideal leader to help us integrate our sustainability-first approach with our sustainable profitable growth mindset,” Callahan said in a statement.
