Campbell appoints Brawley executive vice president, general counsel; succeeds Ciongoli

Camden-based Campbell Soup Company today announced the appointment of Charles Brawley, III as executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, effective Nov. 30, 2023. He succeeds Adam Ciongoli who has accepted a role at another company.

Brawley joined the company in 2016 and most recently served as senior vice president, corporate secretary and deputy general counsel, overseeing Campbell’s legal functions of corporate governance, securities law, and commercial contracts. In his expanded role, he will oversee the company’s Legal department, including Government Affairs, Global Security and Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability. He will report to President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Clouse and become a member of Campbell’s Operating Committee.

“Charlie has played a crucial role in all aspects of Campbell’s strategy and business, working closely with me, the Operating Committee, and our Board of Directors. I’m pleased that our strong talent pipeline enables us to promote Charlie to step into this critical role and continue to build upon our momentum,” Clouse said.

Prior to Campbell, Brawley was Senior Vice President, Secretary and Associate General Counsel of Lincoln Financial Group. He also spent several years at PMA Capital Corporation and Cigna Corporation. Brawley began his legal career with the law firm of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP in Philadelphia.

Ciongoli, who joined the company in 2015, has served as general counsel and chief sustainability, corporate responsibility and Governance officer and played a significant role in Campbell’s transformation. He is leaving the company to join Fox Corporation as chief legal and policy officer.

Clouse said, “Adam has been an invaluable strategic partner to me and our Board of Directors. We are deeply grateful for his contributions and wish him the best in his new role.”
