“We are gaining momentum around our cultural evolution, increasing our focus on creating an inclusive environment that further fuels the high-level innovation that has been a hallmark of Emerson for over 130 years,” said Emerson President and CEO Lal Karsanbhai. “Elizabeth is a proven leader with deep experience in guiding teams to success, and we are eager to see her bring this passion and spark to Emerson. Bringing in a leader of her caliber, knowledge and energy will only accelerate our efforts and reinforce Emerson as a destination workplace for exceptional talent.”

Adefioye led Ingredion’s culture transformation and development of a new purpose statement and updated values across the company. Prior to joining Ingredion in 2016, Adefioye held human resources leadership roles at Johnson & Johnson, Novartis Consumer Health, Medtronic and Bristol-Myers Squibb.

“Emerson is a well-known leader putting a renewed emphasis on creating a strong internal culture to propel not only the company but the industries it serves into a better future,” Adefioye said. “Companies can have the strongest strategy for growth, but if they don’t intentionally foster a culture that supports and empowers all voices across the organization, that strategy will not succeed. I’m energized to see Emerson’s commitment to culture and look forward to partnering with Lal, the Board and the entire organization to continue advancing progress together.”

An active leader in her field, Adefioye is an ambassador for the Network of Executive Women, serves on the board of the Society for Human Resources Management, Skills for Chicagoland’s Future and is a member of The Economic Club of Chicago. Adefioye was named to the “2021 Elite 100 Extraordinary Black Women” changing the face of Corporate America. She was recognized among the “2019 Most Powerful Women in Corporate America” by Black Enterprise and was a recipient of the 2018 “Women Worth Watching Awards” by Profiles in Diversity Journal.

Adefioye has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Lagos State University, a postgraduate degree in human resources management from the University of Westminster in London and a diploma in Building Leadership Capability and Leadership in Action from Glasgow Caledonian University. While she has lived and worked throughout the United States, Asia and Europe, Adefioye will relocate to Emerson’s St. Louis headquarters.
