Beiersdorf, the maker of Nivea and other skin care products, said on Tuesday it has appointed Dessi Temperley, head of investor relations at Swiss food giant Nestle, as its new finance chief.

Temperley, who previously served as regional finance chief for Nestle’s pet food brand Purina for Europe, Middle East and North Africa, takes over from Jesper Andersen on July 1, Beiersdorf said in a statement.

Temperley, 45, began her career with Shell Bulgaria in 1994, worked with Cable & Wireless in Moscow and London and then moved to Nestle in 2004.

Beiersdorf said in February that the supervisory board had decided not to extend Andersen’s contract that is due to end in June. Andersen took over from long-serving CFO Ulrich Schmidt in 2016.

The new appointment follows a cautious outlook for 2018 released in March, with the Nivea owner saying that it expected yearly sales growth of around 4 percent, adding operating profit margin would stay at a similar level to last year.
