Rick Goings of Tupperware Named CEO of theYear

ORLANDO, Fla., May 15, 2013 -- Rick Goings, chairman and chief executive officer of Tupperware Brands Corporation, received the CEO of the Year award from the Holmes Group, an organization dedicated to proving and improving the value of public relations, during a May 7 ceremony in New York City.

The inaugural award honors one visionary CEO who works diligently to enhance the role of public relations within his or her organization and demonstrates a clear commitment to ensuring that the organization embraces the principles of ethical and effective public relations, in its culture, its communications and its actions.

Under Goings' leadership, Tupperware Brands, a global lifestyle solutions and beauty products company, has thrived with a multi-billion dollar portfolio and global scale of the corporation, with much of that growth coming from emerging markets. During his tenure, Goings has grown the company significantly and has contemporized its entire business model, including product lines, party selling system, and compensation and recruiting approaches.

Goings' multi-faceted commitment to philanthropic, volunteerism and cause initiatives have increased the economic stability, health and education of women ― and, by extension, their families and communities ― around the world. Last year, the company engaged the Global Fairness Initiative, a valued partner in researching and delivering sustainable approaches to economic development, in order to develop and implement an independent research study to quantify the positive economic and social impact of the Tupperware and Fuller Cosmetics business opportunities for women in Mexico.

"I am honored to receive this award from the Holmes Group, as I believe that in our changing global world, communications is more important than ever before and can help bring to the foreground important issues facing today's world," said Goings. "Our business is stronger than ever - diversified, balanced, and one that performs well in all economies, clearly illustrated by our strong geographic mix across emerging and established markets. Though the issues and challenges for women and girls around the world are still enormous, we strive to combine sustained planned efforts with passion and focus to drive progress and make our global impact a reality."

Goings joined Tupperware Brands 20 years ago. The company recently announced its first quarter earnings, which continues to yield positive results with sales up more than 10 percent in local currency in emerging markets and revenue topping $660 million. Since December, the company has seen its market cap increase to $4.3 billion. Earlier this year, FORTUNE named Tupperware Brands a World's Most Admired Company for a sixth consecutive year.
