US: Brown-Forman appoints Joan Amble to board
Joan Amble has joined Brown-Forman's board of directors
Brown-Forman has confirmed an addition to its board of directors.
The US-based spirits and wine producer said late last week that Joan Amble has been elected to its board. Amble is set to retire as executive VP of finance and comptroller at the American Express Company at the end of this year.
Prior to joining American Express in 2004, Amble was CFO and COO of GE Capital Markets, part of General Electric Company, where she held several financial positions during her 14-year tenure. Prior to joining GE, she worked at the Financial Accounting Standard Board and as a certified public accountant at Ernst & Young.
“Joan Amble is a very accomplished executive with extensive business experience, particularly in the financial arena,” said Brown-Forman's chairman, Garvin Brown IV. “We’re delighted to welcome her to the board and believe she will provide significant contributions to the future success of Brown-Forman.”
Her appointment to Brown-Forman has taken immediate effect.
