Premier Foods has appointed Pam Powell as a non-executive director with immediate effect. Pam Powell has more than 20 years marketing experience developing some of the world’s leading consumer brands. Most recently, she was the Group Strategy and Innovation Director for SABMiller, one of the world’s leading brewers.

Additionally, Pam held numerous marketing roles in the home and personal care sector during a 13 year career at Unilever, culminating in her role as global Vice President of the Skin Care category. During her time at Unilever, Pam was most closely associated with Dove, which more than doubled revenue to become Unilever’s first billion dollar brand.

Pam holds a degree in Economics from Duke University in North Carolina and an MBA in Marketing from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke.

David Beever, Chairman of Premier Foods, comments: “Over the past year, we have been actively strengthening the board to reflect a broad range of commercial, financial, communications and marketing experience. Pam’s appointment is part of this drive. Her significant experience in marketing global consumer brands will be a tremendous benefit as Premier Foods looks to accelerate the growth of its Power Brands.”
