He began his career at Price Waterhouse Coopers. Mr Marberger holds a MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and a BBA from the University of Massachusetts.
“Dave is a proven leader with relevant industry expertise and significant experience developing and guiding finance organisations,” said Mr Connolly.

We look forward to benefiting from his insights and expertise as we continue our efforts to turn ConAgra Foods into a focused, higher-margin, more contemporary and higher-performing company.”
Dave Marberger said, “I am honoured to join ConAgra Foods at such an exciting time. I look forward to working closely with Sean and the rest of the team as we complete the spin-off of Lamb Weston and deliver enhanced focus and improved performance and shareholder value.”
