Comments: Tupperware CEO Rick Goings made headlines this year, saying that the US is a “Wal-Mart market,” according to reports. But on a global scope, the company is seeing gains boosted by growth in Asia and South America.
“We are not reliant on one part of the world or one market to perform in order to deliver,” Goings said, defining its established markets as those in Western Europe including Scandinavia, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and the US. All other markets are classified as emerging markets.
For 2012, corporate sales stayed flat at $2.6 billion and net income fell 12% to $193.0 million. Beauty sales rose 5% globally to $711 million, but in North America fell 12% to $348.3 million. This decrease was primarily a result of smaller and less active sales forces in both Fuller Mexico, due to higher field manager turnover, and BeautiControl, from higher achievement standards for awards and fewer promotionally driven initiatives compared with 2011.
The company also had two personnel changes this year, with the addition of Mercedes Bazterrica as senior vice president and chief brands officer this Spring. Previously, she was vice president, marketing, international with Kimberly-Clark Corporation, where she had a tenure of 13 years.
Lillian D. Garcia is now executive vice president and chief human resources officer; formerly executive vice president and president Fuller Argentina.
Goings also 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.
Tupperware sales were up 4% to $662.9 million for the 13 weeks ended March 30, 2013, the company said.
