Food Giant Conagra Taps Carey Bartell to Lead Legal Team

Packaged-foods maker Conagra Brands has promoted Carey Bartell to executive vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. The company, known for brands such as Birds Eye, Marie Callender’s and Vlasic, has more than 18,000 employees and more than $11 billion in annual revenue.

Bartell has been with Conagra since 2016, most recently serving as vice president and chief counsel for litigation and compliance. Prior to Conagra, Bartell began her career at Sachnoff & Weaver, where she was promoted from associate to partner, and continued with the firm through its merger with Reed Smith. She then went on to work for Hospira, an American global pharmaceutical and medical device company, where she was promoted from senior counsel to vice president, legal. In this role Bartell oversaw the company’s litigation, labor, employment, and immigration law, and advised senior management and the board of directors regarding diverse legal and business risks.

CEO Sean Connolly said Bartell was a natural fit following general counsel Colleen Batcheler’s departure in April to become general counsel of Hertz.

“For more than six years, Carey Bartell has been a valuable Conagra leader who has served as vice president and chief counsel leading the company’s litigation efforts and compliance programs,” Connolly said. “Her more than 20 years of experience combined with her passion and business expertise make her the right leader for this critical role.”
