Staples has nominated three new directors to its board. 

The company’s board of directors has nominated Curtis Feeny, managing director of Voyager Capital, Deb Henretta, former group president of global e-commerce at Procter & Gamble, and John Lundgren, chairman and CEO of Stanley Black & Decker, for election at the company’s 2016 annual meeting.

Feeny has been managing director of Voyager Capital since 2000. Henretta currently serves as senior advisor to SSA & Co., an executive strategy consulting firm. She spent 30 years at Procter & Gamble, serving as president of the company’s business in ASEAN, Australia and India from 2005, group president, Procter & Gamble Asia from 2007, and group president of the company’s global beauty sector from 2013 before her appointment as P&G’s global e-commerce president in 2015.

Lundgren has been chairman and CEO of Stanley Black & Decker, the entity that followed the 2010 merger of Black and Decker and The Stanley Works, where he had been chairman and CEO.

“I’m pleased that we are nominating three highly qualified individuals to join our board of directors,” said Vijay Vishwanath, Staples’ nominating and corporate governance committee chair. “Curtis, Deb and John each bring fresh perspectives and a wealth of diverse experiences, and we are excited to welcome them to our board.”
