Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Backed by years of professional experience in management, manufacturing, and more, Mr. Barber presently excels as the capital manager for Kimberly-Clark. Since obtaining the role in 2018, he has maintained responsibility for overseeing the capital budget for the company's North American consumer business and supervising global capital management systems. Prior to obtaining his current position, he worked as an operation's senior consultant for the baby and child care business between 2012 and 2018.

During the early stages of his career, Mr. Barber gained valuable professional expertise with Kimberly-Clark in numerous positions, including research and engineering, manufacturing, project management, information technology, and finance. He was also a key leader for the implementation of Kimberly-Clark's SAP forecast-to-stock workstream.
