According to a press release, the new position will be effective June 25. Stahl is currently a member of the Board and the Lead Director of Catalent since August 2014. From 2002 to 2006, Stahl was President and Chief Executive Officer of Revlon. Before that, from 2000 to 2001, he was President and Chief Operating Officer of The Coca-Cola Company after previously serving in various management positions of increasing responsibility during a tenure.
Stahl presently also serves on the Board of Advantage Solutions and on the U.S. Board of Advisors of CVC Capital. Further, he formerly served on the Boards of Schering-Plough Corporation, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Saks, Coty, and Ahold Delhaize, and was Chairman of the Board of Managers of New Avon.
