“Kathy’s many years of extensive operating experience, both domestically and internationally, coupled with her proven track record of driving growth through effective business strategies and operational efficiencies, make Kathy a great addition to our Board,” said Tim Main, Jabil’s chairman of the Board.
Walters previously served as an independent director on Jabil’s Board of Directors from 2005-2011, when she served as the chair of the Compensation Committee and on other special committees.
"I’m excited to rejoin the Board of Directors of Jabil," said Walters. "I’ve closely followed the company’s success over the past nine years. During that time, the company has grown considerably and now serves several new and exciting end-markets. Moving ahead, I believe my background in both manufacturing and consumer products aligns well with the strategic direction of the company and I welcome another opportunity to contribute as a member of the Board."
Walters was an executive at Georgia-Pacific Corp from 2004 until her retirement in June 2019, serving her last 12 years as the executive VP and group president, leading the consumer products group.
She also served three years as president of the North American Commercial Business for GP.
Before joining GP, Walters served as president and CEO of Sappi Fine Paper North America.
