Good360 announced today that Mark White, vice president of merchandising services for The Home Depot in Atlanta, Ga., has joined the organization’s board of directors. White joins Good360 as the nonprofit enters its 30th year as a thought leader in the product philanthropy space.
“With decades of experience in retail, sales, marketing and leadership, we are thrilled that Mark is joining Good360,” said Cindy Hallberlin, president and CEO of Good360. “His work with the top brands and companies across the nation will help Good360 to further its mission to transform lives and strengthen communities by mobilizing companies to donate needed goods.”
In his role at The Home Depot, White leads a team of more than 15,000 associates to deliver in-store merchandising solutions that drive sales, enable speed and create value for the stores, suppliers and shoppers. He has more than 25 years of experience in retail services and consumer packaged goods with The Procter & Gamble Company, Acosta Sales and Marketing Company and Mosaic, where he served as president, North America. White earned his undergraduate degree in business from the University of Florida and his MBA from the University of Central Florida. He recently served on the national board of directors for Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization.
“Our longstanding and successful partnership with Good360 through our Framing Hope program has enabled our stores to embody one of our core values—that of giving back,” said White. “I am honored to utilize my corporate and philanthropic experience to further Good360’s ability to positively impact communities.” White joins Good360’s board of directors, chaired by Carly Fiorina, former president and CEO of HP. Fiorina will be working with a strategic team at Good360 to launch a new technology platform in early 2014 that will engage communities, individuals and companies in leveraging an online product philanthropy exchange.
