Post Holdings has announced that President and Chief Executive Officer Robert V. Vitale is taking an unexpected medical leave of absence.

At this time, it is too soon to know the course of treatment and timing of recovery.

Consistent with Post’s established emergency succession protocol, the company's Board of Directors has named Jeff A. Zadoks, currently Post’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, as interim CEO while Vitale is on leave.

“Our thoughts and best wishes go out to Rob as he recovers," said William P. Stiritz, chairman of Post’s Board of Directors. "We are grateful to Jeff for stepping in during Rob’s absence. Post’s operating model and exceptional team of business unit and holding company executives give me great confidence in our ability to maintain the continuity of our business.”

Zadoks has a long history with Post working closely with Vitale and the Board, serving in various roles at Post since 2011. Prior to serving as Post’s EVP and COO, Mr. Zadoks served for eight years as Post’s EVP and chief financial officer.

Vitale has served as Post's CEO since 2014. Prior to that, he was the chief financial officer from 2011 to 2014.
