Mohamed joins the company from coffee firm Jacobs Douwe Egberts, where he spent the past four years as finance director for its UK operations. 

Prior to this, he has spent more than 15 years in the fast-moving consumer goods industry, as well as considerable experience within the aerospace and automotive industries via Rolls-Royce and Jaguar Land Rover.  

‘Biggest in the UK’  

Commenting on his appointment, Mohamed said: “I’ve always had a passion to work for well-known companies and it doesn’t get much bigger in the UK than Weetabix, so I’m very proud to begin my journey at this iconic brand. 

“These are of course challenging times for many food and drink manufacturers as a result of global cost pressures, and I’m looking forward to getting under the skin of the business to help us efficiently and sustainability keep on feeding the nation with tasty, nutritious products.” 

Mohamed joins the team to replace Bruce Condon, who has stepped into an executive leadership role within the business as director of finance. Mohamed will report directly to Condon. 

‘Wealth of experience’ 

Condon added: “Nurain joins us with a wealth of experience and has worked across several roles within finance, covering supply chain, accounting and commercial operations. He will be a great asset for the finance team, and we look forward to working with him to navigate the current economic climate and beyond.”
