A Message from Our President & CEO

I am pleased to share Newell Brands’ annual Corporate Citizenship Report. This year’s theme, “Building Today for a Better Tomorrow,” encapsulates our 2023 progress to strengthen the organization, improve financial performance, build a sustainable future and create value for our stakeholders.

Since I became President & CEO in May 2023, we introduced and deployed a comprehensive corporate strategy based on a thorough capability assessment. It focuses on strengthening our front-end commercial capabilities and disproportionately investing in innovation, brand building and go-to-market excellence for our largest brands and most profitable geographies as part of an integrated set of Where to Play and How to Win choices. Despite a challenging external environment, our clear focus has enabled us to make tangible progress in executing our strategy and improving the structural economics of the business.
