Before coming to Campbell, Mr. Armstrong served as the Senior Marketing Counsel at Energizer’s Schick-Wilkinson Sword Division and as the Assistant General Counsel for Marketing at Unilever United States. He also served as a regulatory and division counsel at Colgate-Palmolive Company. Mr. Armstrong is on the Board of Directors of the Food and Drug Law Institute in Washington, D.C., and is a frequent speaker on food law issues. Prior to his in-house practice, Mr. Armstrong worked as an associate in commercial litigation and regulatory matters at Townley & Updike in New York City.
