Home Suite Hope welcomes Valerie Del Hierro to its Board of Directors in 2024.
Val is currently the Vice President of Sales Strategy & Planning for Irving Consumer Products (with brands that include Royale Tissue and Tiger Towels). She has been with Irving since 2021, when she joined as the Sr. Director of Sales leading their business with Loblaws.
Prior to Irving, Val spent 17 years with PepsiCo where she worked across all key businesses (Frito Lay, Quaker, Pepsi, Tropicana and Gatorade).
Val has held roles in Sales, Category Management, Shopper Marketing and Corporate Strategy. Her favourite roles have been when she gets to chart new paths as companies enter new businesses or find new ways of doing things.
Val is passionate about ongoing development for herself and others. She believes in building companies that empower women and men to be their professional and personal best. She was a founding member of PepsiCo Women’s Inclusion Network and a Council Member from 2009-2017. At Irving, she is excited to be the Co-Founder of WIND (Women Inspiring a Network of Development), which launched in 2023. She was also a Lead for the Catalyst Mentoring program at PepsiCo where she guided groups of Peer Mentors.
Val’s house is a busy one, with her husband, three children and two dogs. They love to travel together, or just curl up for a family movie night. When she needs some time to herself, Val enjoys running, is trying to get stronger by working out with weights and she simply devours books.
Val is no stranger to HSH as she has been serving on its Industry Council.
Welcome to the HSH Board!
