Tim Callahan, VP-global business development at Campbell Soup Co., Camden, N.J., has been boosted to head Campbell's global beverage business, succeeding Sally Robling, VP-global beverages, who is believed to be taking a leave from the company. His new post couldn't be confirmed at deadline. The move leaves the company without a high-level executive overseeing advertising services, which reported to Mr. Callahan. Separately, Campbell quietly laid off an estimated 60-plus staffers last week, mainly in engineering and research & development.
