Helen of Troy has announced that its board of directors appointed Julien Mininberg, CEO, to serve on its 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 chief executive officer 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.
Julien Mininberg commented, “I am delighted to join the board of directors. In the months leading up to being appointed CEO of Helen of Troy and my four weeks in this role, I have begun working closely with them on a wide variety of matters, and have benefited greatly from their experience. Now joining the board as a director, I look forward to helping shape and execute the multi-year plan we are developing for the benefit of all of our stakeholders.”
