Fenske will have global responsibilities for procurement, manufacturing, logistics, transportation, safety and sustainability, as well as the company’s Global Nonwovens division. She will report to Mike Hsu, Kimberly-Clark chairman and CEO, and become a member of the company’s executive leadership team.

“Tamera’s proven leadership in supply chain and business transformation make her the right leader for our world-class supply chain operation,” Hsu said in a news release. “I’m looking forward to her leadership as we continue to maximize the full potential of our global manufacturing footprint to drive our growth strategy for long-term value creation.”

Fenske joins Kimberly-Clark with deep experience leading manufacturing and supply chain operations. Most recently, she served as senior vice president of manufacturing and supply chain for 3M Company, where she led the end-to-end supply chain for the company in the U.S. and Canada across all its business groups and markets.

During her 22-year tenure with 3M, Fenske held various senior roles leading manufacturing, supply chain and operations for each of the company’s global businesses, as well as plant management.

“I’m inspired by Kimberly-Clark’s purpose of Better Care for a Better World, and how it’s guiding future growth and societal impact,” Fenske said. “I’m looking forward to working with the teams producing the company’s trusted, iconic brands that provide care for billions of people around the globe and finding ways to provide even more access to Kimberly-Clark’s essential products.”
