In a bold move to steer Tupperware Brands Corporation back to its glory days, the company has welcomed Laurie Ann Goldman as its new CEO, president, and board director. Goldman, a seasoned executive renowned for her transformative leadership at Avon North America and Spanx, faces a daunting task as she steps into this role. Tupperware, a Florida-based product company, witnessed a staggering 70% drop in its stock price over the past year, raising doubts about its survival.
A Proven Leader Steps In
Goldman, armed with over three decades of leadership experience, brings a wealth of knowledge to Tupperware. Her impressive track record includes successful tenures as CEO of OVME Aesthetics and Avon North America. Notably, between 2018 and 2019, she played a pivotal role in driving value creation for Avon, a beauty company with a vast network of 250,000 independent sales representatives across North America.
From Startup to Global Leader
Prior to her role at Avon, Goldman served as the CEO of Spanx, where she transformed the startup into a global category leader and household name. Despite these successes, Tupperware found itself in troubled waters, battling financial headwinds and operational challenges since 2019. The company’s struggle persisted even as new leadership took charge in 2020, exacerbated by global coronavirus-related shutdowns.
A Turnaround Plan in Motion
Undeterred by these challenges, Tupperware initiated a comprehensive turnaround plan in 2020. The plan aimed to bolster profitability, fortify the company’s balance sheet, and restructure its debt. Despite these efforts, a recent regulatory filing highlighted “substantial doubt about its ability to continue.” In the face of adversity, Goldman remains optimistic.
A Glimpse of Hope
“I am excited and energized to lead this iconic brand whose innovative products are coveted by millions around the world,” Goldman declared. Her enthusiasm underscores the company’s enduring spirit and commitment to delivering products trusted and loved by consumers worldwide. Tupperware’s future hangs in the balance, but with Goldman at the helm, there’s a glimmer of hope on the horizon.
