Mr. Freda continued, “Jane’s expanded portfolio of brands will strongly benefit from her best-in-class leadership as an excellent brand marketer with a strong commitment to quality. She is also widely recognized for her expertise in local relevance − tailoring product innovation and marketing to our consumers − and her excellent ability to grow brand appeal across multiple generations, from ageless consumers to millennials.”
