Tupperware Brands Corporation announced that Jim Van Ingen has been named Executive Vice President of Supply Chain. Van Ingen will now oversee operational performance and cost objectives and will lead the designing of processes, infrastructure and technology to improve operational excellence. As a member of the senior leadership team, he will lead manufacturing, procurement, distribution and quality teams to strategically optimize the company’s future for supply chain sourcing and reduce costs amid inflationary pressures on areas like resin and logistics.
Previously, Van Ingen served as President and CEO of a $1.5 billion private equity portfolio company as well as a twenty-year career in the automotive industry where he was responsible for maintaining cost and efficiency levels during a volatile period for semiconductor chip and plastic resin sourcing.
“We’re building a business that is as big as the Tupperware brand, and in order to do so, we’re expanding into new channels, new product categories and new methods of distribution,” said Miguel Fernandez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tupperware Brands. “Having a skilled and experienced supply chain leader like Jim is exactly the talent we need to help push our omnichannel growth plan forward. Especially in today’s challenging operating and supply chain environment, we believe that Jim’s global operational expertise, successful turnaround experience, and ability to build high-performing supply chain teams around the world will be an especially valuable asset to our rapidly evolving company.”
