The new CFO of Heinz Kraft is 29 years old

"David Knopf, 29, will assume the role Oct. 1, the company said today (Sept. 8), making him the youngest CFO to lead one of the US’s largest companies. (The next youngest, at 27, is Andrew Power of Digital Realty, according to research from Crist Kolder, an executive search firm.)"

Makes to take a pause....

Hi Wayne,

Seems pretty ridiculous to me, so time to sell KHC short. If they do manage a turnaround, I posit that it would be in spite of the CFO.
