Charlotte's Web Adds To Board of Directors
Charlotte's Web appointed Jacques Tortoroli to its board of directors.
Tortoroli, who most recently served as chief administration officer of Bacardi Limited in Bermuda, brings extensive global experience in finance and operations at both private and public companies. As CAO of Bacardi, he was a member of the Global Leadership Team and responsible for global finance, operations, information technology and real estate.
Before joining Bacardi in 2014, Tortoroli had spent more than a decade at Viacom, Inc. He held a number of senior finance roles at the multinational entertainment company, most recently serving as both executive vice president of Finance for Viacom and as EVP and chief financial officer for Viacom Media Networks, formerly MTV Networks. Prior to that, he held various executive leadership roles at Young & Rubicam, Inc., PepsiCo, Inc., and KPMG.
Tortoroli also recently accepted a position as executive in residence and lecturer at St. Thomas Aquinas College in New York. He has been a member of the college's board of trustees since 2001, serving on the Audit Committee and the Investment & Finance Committee. Tortoroli previously served as a board member of the International Baccalaureate, as head of the Audit and Finance Committee and member of the Compensation Committee, Geneva and Cardiff.
"Jacques' appointment is timely, with the company exploring plans to expand globally as the market leader in CBD products," said Joel Stanley, Charlotte's Web chairman of the board and co-founder. "His deep financial knowledge and breadth of international experience in public and private companies will make an important contribution during our next phase of growth."
Mr. Tortoroli, who will serve on the Compensation and Audit Committees, brings the number of directors to seven.
