Kimberly-Clark seeks to enhance global business plans with executive changes


DALLAS — Kimberly-Clark announced the transition of two executives to new roles at the company.

The company said Kimberly-Clark Professional president Christian Brickman has been elected to serve as president Kimberly-Clark International. The current president of the company's international division, Bob Black, is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. Replacing Brickman in his current role is Elaine Stock, who currently serves as Kimberly-Clark's SVP and chief strategy officer.

The changes, which are designed to further enhance the company's focus to deliver its global business plan commitments and drive global expansion, are effective May 1. Both Brickman and Stock will continue to report to company chairman and CEO Thomas Falk.

"We have a great team in place to drive our business plan strategies across the globe," Falk said. "Chris and Elane are strong leaders with excellent track records. Chris brings tremendous experience and success into his K-C International role and will continue to drive the expansion of our international business. Elane's general management and strategy experience make her the ideal successor to expand on our Kimberly-Clark Professional business aspiration to create exceptional workplaces."
