Maria Molland, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Thinx, an industry leader in reusable period and incontinence underwear, has stepped down to spend time with her young children.
“This job is undeniably the best I’ve ever had, and I’m immensely proud of what we’ve achieved together to break boundaries and bring reusable period and incontinence underwear to more people around the world,” said Molland. “This was not an easy decision but one that I know is right for me personally. It has been a privilege to serve the Thinx community of customers and work with an amazing group of talented people.”
Former Johnson & Johnson executive Meghan Davis will be taking over the reigns from Molland.
“We’re excited for what the future holds for the Thinx brand and its products, and we thank Maria for her longstanding commitment to helping the company further cement its leadership in the femtech category,” said Alison Lewis, chair for Thinx board of directors.
“This commitment includes Maria’s support as we searched for her successor. We are thrilled to bring in a leader of Meghan’s caliber and experience to oversee this business. Her insights and data-driven approach to brand building will help us continue to develop innovative solutions based on consumer needs and unlock the next phase of growth for Thinx.”
Davis brings over 20 years of experience leading healthcare and beauty businesses across multiple geographies, cultures, and demographics.
Prior to joining Thinx, Davis held various leadership positions with Johnson & Johnson, including the country director in Portugal, where she led consumer health; Northern Europe marketing director for the consumer division; and regional marketing manager for beauty in North America.
Davis has been recognized for leading her team through the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic while delivering strong sales and increased market share and profitability.
“Thinx is a brand that I have admired for revolutionizing the feminine care industry, confronting stigmas, and fighting for access to period products,” said Davis. “I have tremendous respect for the company and am excited for the opportunity to help accelerate Thinx’s impact and growth by continuing to deliver leading-edge innovation in sustainable femtech.”
To ensure a smooth transition, Molland will continue at Thinx until June 30, 2022.
