Tupperware Brands Corporation announced that Laurie Ann Goldman has been named President and Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Goldman succeeds Miguel Fernandez, who will no longer serve as Director of Tupperware’s Board of Directors.
Goldman brings more than three decades of leadership and brand-building experience as CEO of companies within and outside of the direct selling space, and is known for her ability to transform companies into category leaders.
“Laurie Ann brings the right mix of business and brand experience and has built consumer affinity for some of the world’s most iconic brands,” said Susan Cameron, Chair of Tupperware’s Board of Directors. “We are confident that her proven history of motivating global sales teams, along with her strong operational and financial capabilities, will empower our teams and accelerate our efforts to guide Tupperware to sustainable, long-term growth.”
The company also announced what it called “board refreshment” and has appointed Lori Bush, Paul Keglevic and William Transier to the Board of Directors. Mark Burgess, Meg Crofton, Deborah Ellinger and James Fordyce have voluntarily stepped down from the Board. With these changes and the departure of Richard Goudis, the board now consists of eleven directors, ten of whom are independent.
