EL PASO, Texas — Helen of Troy — whose portfolio of personal care products includes Vidal Sassoon, Sure, Pert and Brut — has announced that its board has appointed CEO Julien Mininberg to serve on the board until the next annual meeting of shareholders.
Mininberg’s appointment fills the vacancy created by the departure of Gerald Rubin, the company’s former CEO and a former director of the company. The board intends to nominate Mininberg as a director of the company at the next annual general meeting of shareholders.
“I am pleased to have Julien join our board of directors. Julien is a strong leader who has made significant contributions to Helen of Troy as President and CEO of Kaz and now as CEO for Helen of Troy. It is only fitting that Julien join the Board and benefit more closely from the wisdom of its diverse group of members,” stated Timothy F. Meeker, chairman.
Mininberg has been with Kaz since 2006, becoming president in 2007 and CEO in 2010. Before joining Kaz, Mininberg spent 15 years at Procter & Gamble, where he spent four years in general management and 11 in marketing. His P&G career was split evenly between the United States and Latin America.
