Camille Pierce will lead Campbell Soup Co.’s inclusion and diversity strategy as vice president and chief culture officer, effective Oct. 26.
Pierce, who joins Campbell from Whirlpool Corp. where she most recently served as senior director of global inclusion and diversity, will work across the organization to build “a winning team and culture” and align the company’s inclusion and diversity goals with business outcomes. She will also be a member of the Campbell Leadership Team.
“We’re approaching inclusion and diversity and culture change in a comprehensive and systemic way, by making it a company-wide priority supported by an integrated plan with measurable goals and a multi-year approach,” said Chief Executive Officer Mark Clouse in a prepared statement. “Camille’s leadership and expertise will add tremendous value to our team, and she will be critical in our ongoing progress to build an inclusive and winning culture.”
Pierce will report to Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Xavier Boza and to Clouse.
During her tenure at Whirlpool, the company was named a Noteworthy Company for Diversity & Inclusion by DiversityInc and appeared on multiple indices including the Diversity Best Practices Inclusion Index, the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index and the American Association of People with Disabilities Disability Equality Index.
She was recognized by Black Enterprise Magazine as a top executive in diversity and inclusion last year.
Prior to her time at Whirlpool, Pierce held marketing and human resources roles at Proctor & Gamble, most recently leading P&G’s global leadership development academy.
