Irene Chang Britt, a former executive at Campbell Soup Co (NYSE: CPB), has joined the board of IDEXX Laboratories Inc. (Nasdaq: IDEXX).

The Westbrook-based veterinary diagnostics company said the appointment is effective as of July 11.

For more than a decade at Campbell Soup, Chang Britt served in roles including president and CEO of Pepperidge Farm Ltd.; senior vice president of Campbell Soup's global baking and snacking division; and senior vice president and chief strategy officer. 

Today, she is an independent director at Brighthouse Financial. Inc., a provider of annuities and life insurance, and Victoria’s Secret & Co., a clothing and beauty retailer. 

“Irene is a seasoned executive and director who brings a wealth of business, strategic and leadership experience from her prior senior management roles at public companies, as well as valuable perspectives from her service on public and private company boards,” said Larry Kingsley, IDEXX’s independent non-executive board chair. “We are confident she will be a strong contributor on our Board."

Before her time at Campbell Soup, Chang Britt held various roles at Kraft Foods, Nabisco and Kimberly-Clark.

She previously served as a director of Tailored Brands Inc., Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc., TerraVia Holdings Inc. and Sunoco Inc.

"I am excited to join the board of a purpose-driven company focused on pet healthcare innovation," she said. "I look forward to working closely with my fellow directors and the IDEXX leadership team to deliver on our purpose to enhance the health and well-being of pets, people, and livestock while creating long-term value for our stakeholders.”

Chang Britt received her undergraduate degree in anthropology from the University of Toronto and her MBA from the University of Western Ontario.

IDEXX, led by President and CEO Jay Mazelsky, is scheduled to release second-quarter financial resorts on Aug. 1 before the market opens. The stock has a current market value of around $43.3 billion and is trading 44% higher than a year ago.

The company employs 11,000 people worldwide and offers solutions and products to customers in more than 175 countries.
