Life after SC Johnson is turning out souper for William Perez, after all. He's just been elected to the board of directors of the Campbell Soup Co.
The former SCJ chief executive officer left here in 2004 to become CEO of Nike -- a job that lasted only 13 months but earned him an $11 million severance payment (and stock options). Then in 2006 he became CEO of gum maker Wrigley -- which soon was sold to candy maker Mars. That, too, produced a big payday: at least $28 million, according to Corporate Dealmaker.
