Charles R. Shoemate
Shoemate presided over a dramatic growth period for CPC International (maker of Hellman’s mayonnaise, Thomas English muffins, and Knorr soups), building it into one of the world’s largest food producers. Through skillful acquisitions, CPC built a formidable international presence, the largest of any U.S.-based operation. Shoemate presided over the successful spin-off of BestFoods and orchestrated its eventual, highly profitable acquisition by Unilever.
