Kitchenware seller Tupperware Brands and skincare company Rodan + Fields have both made recent board appointments with an eye toward future growth.
Corporate finance consultant Louis J. Lavigne Jr. is the newest member of the board at Rodan + Fields. Lavigne, currently Managing Director of consulting firm Lavrite LLC, spent 23 years as Executive Vice President and CFO at Genentech Inc., a leading biotech company. In addition to overseeing the company’s financial, corporate relations and information technology groups, Lavigne sat on the executive committee and chaired the company’s 401(k) plan committee.
“Lou’s demonstrated financial expertise and broad leadership experience will prove critical to Rodan + Fields as we continue to globalize our business,” said Amnon Rodan, Chairman of the Board.
Tupperware has tapped corporate executive Richard T. Riley as its 12th board member. Riley’s leadership experience spans several industries, but he is currently independent Chairman of the Board of Cimpress, N.V., an international market leader in personalized products and services for small businesses. He previously held senior executive positions at Lojack Corp., New England Business Service Inc., and Rapidforms Inc., after beginning his career at Arthur Andersen & Co.
