Campbell Soup Co. appointed Stewart Lindsay vice president of corporate responsibility and sustainability, effective Dec. 6. He joins Campbell from The Nature Conservancy, where he’s been managing director of corporate engagement since 2019.
In his new role, Lindsay will be responsible for Campbell’s corporate responsibility and sustainability strategy and programs. He will lead teams responsible for environmental sustainability and sustainable agriculture and will report to Adam Ciongoli, executive vice president general counsel and chief sustainability, corporate responsibility and governance officer.
“Stewart will bring a unique perspective to our corporate responsibility and sustainability efforts based on his years of work in the food industry and experience at one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world,” said Ciongoli in a prepared statement.
At The Nature Conservancy, Lindsay was responsible for developing and managing major corporate partnerships. Prior to that, he spent 15 years at agribusiness and food company Bunge Ltd. in positions of increasing responsibility, ultimately serving as vice president of sustainability and government affairs.
“I am excited to join Campbell and look forward to expanding on the company’s initiatives to build a more sustainable and resilient food system,” Lindsay said.
Lindsay has New Jersey roots, having earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Princeton University. He went on to Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management for his master’s in business administration.
