In a move to further elevate the needs of retail customers and shoppers into all elements of its consumer products businesses, Kimberly-Clark Corporation has appointed Don Quigley as president of North American Customer Development.
Formerly vice president of PepsiCo Company Development, Mr. Quigley will lead the continued evolution of K-C’s North American Consumer Sales force into a customer-driven business development organization. He will report to Steve Kalmanson, group president of North Atlantic Personal Care and North American Customer Development.
Mr. Quigley succeeds Bruce Paynter, who has been named president of K-C’s newly formed North American Baby Care business, which combines Infant Care, Wet Wipes and Baby Toiletries/Accessories. In this new position, Paynter will be responsible for the companies market-leading Huggies diapers and baby wipes and for building its growing portfolio of Huggies brand extensions that to date include changing pads, baby wash and washcloths.
Mr. Paynter has held a variety of management positions within K-C, including serving as president of North American Adult Care and, prior to that, vice president of Family Care Marketing. Most recently, as head of K-C’s 500-member North American sales team, he led the company’s move from a primarily sales-based organization to one centered on delivering total business solutions from supply chain efficiency to category growth.
