Former Procter & Gamble executive Camille Pierce has joined Campbell Soup Co. in the newly created role of chief culture officer to lead inclusion and diversity efforts.
Pierce will join Campbell on Oct. 26, reporting to both Xavier Boza, the company’s chief human resources officer, and to President and CEO Mark Clouse.
“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 multiyear approach,” Clouse said. “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 joins Camden, New Jersey-based Campbell from Whirlpool Corp., where she most recently held the role of senior director of global inclusion and diversity. Prior to Whirlpool, Pierce spent 20 years at Cincinnati-based Procter & Gamble, where she held marketing and human resources roles, most recently in global learning and leadership development, where she led P&G's global leadership development academy.
Pierce graduated from Florida A&M University with a BS in business administration and an MBA in marketing.
