Stacey Tank 

Chief Transformation Officer 



Not long before the Influencer 100 went to press, Heineken’s chief transformation and corporate affairs officer announced she was leaving the drinks company to re-join her family who moved to the US a year ago due to the illness of one of her children. Stacey Tank will leave Heineken on August 4. Her responsibilities will be split into two roles, and Joanna Price replaced her as chief corporate affairs officer on July 1.

This concludes Tank’s second stint at Heineken. After five years as Home Depot’s chief communications officer, Stacey Tank returned to Heineken in early 2020 as chief corporate affairs and transformation officer. As a direct report to the CEO and member of the executive committee, Tank shepherded the company's new growth strategy, "EverGreen," including originating a new global transformation function. In addition, Tank is responsible for the company's sustainability and ESG vision including its Sustainability & Responsibility Supervisory Board committee.

At Home Depot Tank led the exit of four unprofitable lines of business and quickly returned the remaining businesses to double-digit growth while instilling a strong values-based culture and robust innovation pipeline. She has overseen major movements at her previous roles too, most notably during the decade she spent at GE, where her roles spanned finance, audit and marketing communications.
