After being been on Campbell Soup’s board for almost 16 years, chairman and director Les C. Vinney is retiring.
On Thursday, the canned soup maker announced that Vinney has decided to step down due to “other personal commitments." Vinney, now 70, has been Campbell’s chairman since 2015. Previously, he served as chief executive of medical supply company STERIS Corp., and a chief financial officer at Goodrich Corp. prior to that. In his parting remarks, Vinney said it was a "honor to serve" as a director and as chairman of Campbell.
Vinney will be succeeded by Keith R. McLoughlin as chairman. McLoughlin, age 62, has been a Campbell's director since 2015, and was its interim president and chief executive from May 2018 to January.
