Skills and Qualifications
The Board concluded that Mr. Smucker should serve as a Director largely due to his role as our President and Chief Executive Officer, his significant knowledge of the Company gained from more than 20 years of experience in various positions within the Company, and his experience serving as a director of the Grocery Manufacturers Association and a former director and member of the compensation committee of GS1 U.S. The Board believes that the perspectives that Mr. Smucker brings to the Board are particularly valuable in light of the significance of the coffee and consumer foods businesses to the Company. The Board also believes that continuing participation by qualified members of the Smucker family on the Board is an important part of our corporate culture that has contributed significantly to our long-term success.
