Chow is the executive vice president and chief marketing officer of ConAgra Foods, a food manufacturer and foodservice supplier and was recently named a 2009 Marketer of the Year by Brandweek Magazine.

Prior to joining ConAgra, Chow was senior VP and chief marketing officer of Sears, Roebuck & Co, and held leadership roles at Information Resources, and Johnson & Johnson.

Curt Stoelting, CEO of RC2, stated, “We are pleased to welcome Joan Chow to our board of directors.

"Joan is a leader and marketing innovator with a proven track record of growing brands and connecting with consumers. She’ll bring a fresh perspective to our board.”

The appointment of Chow will temporarily increase the size of RC2’s board of directors pending a planned retirement of a current director, Dan Wright, in May of this year.
