Vice President Human Resources EU

Sam Thomas-Berry has been HR VP EMEA at Kellogg since March 2017.

Sam grew up in Newton-le-Willows, a market town in Merseyside, England. It is situated midway between the cities of Liverpool and Manchester so you could say that Kellogg was always only a stone’s throw away. 

She completed a Business Studies course at John Moores University in Liverpool.  The course covered Marketing, HR, Business Operations and Accounting so it certainly set the foundations for her to work in a variety of areas.  

There are three roles that define her career journey.  The first was with Marconi, a Telecoms giant based in Coventry, where she worked as an HR Generalist, while obtaining her CIPD qualification.


From Telecoms, she moved to Aircraft Engineering taking on the role of HR Lead with British Aerospace, overseeing activities on two manufacturing sites.


Later she joined Kellogg as HR Manager at Wrexham, and holding a variety of other roles – HR Manager in Manchester Plant, European Organisational Effectiveness Lead in Talbot Road, HR Director Supply Chain before getting to the position that she is in in today. 

Sam describes herself as an authentic and real leader. She is hard working and tackles issues head on however difficult they may be. She has a good sense of humour and likes to have fun at work. 

She has been married to her husband Steve for over 15 years, and has two children, Rhys (14) and Caitlin (9).
