Kmiec will be responsible for leading a global digital marketing and social media strategy that encompasses both consumer-facing communications and corporate initiatives. This will involve providing leadership, coordination and oversight of Campbell’s digital and social media activities and policies. He will report to Andrew Brennan, VP of global strategy, advertising and design, and will be based at the company’s world headquarters in Camden, N.J. In this role, Kmiec will work closely with global communications, consumer affairs, investor relations, public affairs and corporate responsibility functions and business unit marketing teams.
“Adam brings a great deal of experience to Campbell, including a broad marketing background and a specific expertise in digital and social media. Throughout his career, Adam has helped a variety of consumer brands establish and expand their digital marketing efforts, and I am confident that he will help Campbell do the same,” said Brennan. “A major focus of our growth strategy is to strengthen our brand and product equities by connecting with new consumers in new ways. Adam will play an important role in this effort.”
“I’m excited to join a company with so many brands that play an important role in people’s lives,” said Kmiec. “Our opportunity to engage consumers in new and innovative ways is limitless. I’m eager to work with the team and to leverage my experience to help grow the business and make Campbell one of the most digitally fit organizations in the world.”
