On February 25, 2019, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Tupperware Brands Corporation (the “Company” or “Registrant”) appointed Cassandra (Sandra) Harris, age 43, to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (and designated her its principal financial officer), effective April 1, 2019 (the “Start Date”). Harris served at VF Corporation, an $11.8 billion publicly-traded global apparel company, from 2008 to 2019, in various roles including, most recently, global Vice President and Chief Information Officer since March 2017. Prior to this role, she served as Chief Financial Officer in the Direct to Consumer and Global Supply Chain divisions since June 2009, including an additional interim role as Chief Financial Officer, Asia / India Brands from February through July 2015.

Harris began her career at Deloitte & Touche, LLP. There is no family relationship between Harris and any Company director or executive officer, or any person nominated or chosen by the Company to become a director or executive officer. Harris has not engaged in any transactions with the Company or its subsidiaries that are required to be disclosed under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K, nor have any such transactions been proposed.

In addition, the Compensation and Management Development Committee of the Board approved a special restricted stock unit award to Harris with a grant date of the Start Date, in the aggregate grant date fair value of $450,000, which award will cliff vest on its three-year anniversary, subject to the standard terms and conditions of the Company’s 2016 Incentive Plan, as amended. Harris will be eligible to participate in other compensation and benefit plans and programs offered to the Company’s executive officers.
