Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s leading community improvement nonprofit organization, recently elected five new senior sustainability and marketing executives to its 30-member national Board of Directors. Among them was Wilton resident Yumi Clevenger-Lee, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Nestlé Waters North America (NWNA).

“At Nestlé Waters North America, we believe that one bottle or can that ends up in a landfill or waterway, is one too many. We’re using the power of our brands to inspire consumers to think and act differently when it comes to recycling and caring for America’s natural resources. I’m proud to join the Board of Directors for Keep America Beautiful, which has been NWNA’s long-time partner in this shared effort to create a waste-free future,” said Clevenger-Lee.

Keep America Beautiful has worked with many of the new representatives’ companies on education and environmental stewardship initiatives in the past, including programs with Nestlé Waters North America focused on promoting recycling education and infrastructure programs.

Joining Clevenger-Lee on the Keep America Beautiful board of directors are executives from Mars Wrigley North America, Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company, Accenture, and Pernod Ricard North America.
