Kimberly-Clark has elected Deirdre Mahlan and Jaime Ramirez to its board of directors, effective immediately. Both board members will serve on the company’s audit committee.

“Adding Deirdre and Jaime to our board will bring valuable perspective as we execute our long-term growth strategy,” said Mike Hsu, chairman and CEO of Kimberly-Clark. “Deirdre has deep finance and CPG experience, having led the North American unit for one of the world’s largest beverage companies, and Jaime brings valuable international perspective from his leadership roles overseeing growth in emerging markets. Both leaders will provide unique contributions to our board conversations.”

Mahlan has worked in several senior finance and general management positions in her previous organizations. Most recently, she completed a nearly 20-year stint at Diageo North America where she served as president since 2015 and was the chief financial officer before that since 2010. Before joining Diego, Mahlan held senior finance positions in Joseph Seagram and Sons and PwC. She is currently on the board of directors of Experian plc and The Duckhorn Portfolio.
