ScottsMiracle-Gro announces retirement of Board of Directors member

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company announced that Nancy Mistretta has retired from its Board of Directors.

Mistretta has been a director since 2007 and served on various Board committees, most recently as a member of the Audit Committee and the Compensation and Organization Committee.

“Nancy has been a great partner and friend over these many years,” said Jim Hagedorn, chairman, CEO and president of ScottsMiracle-Gro. “Her expertise in finance and banking have been invaluable in providing strategic counsel and guidance not only to the management team but also to fellow Board members. She has been a solid contributor in our continual efforts to drive and improve shareholder value. Her leadership and insights will be missed.”

Hagedorn stated that the Company intends to name a replacement to the open Board seat, but a timeline has not been established.

“Nancy’s retirement provides us with an opportunity to further evaluate the skill sets, experience and backgrounds of our Board members. In the last 18 months, we have undertaken a refresh of the Board, bringing on three new directors with diverse perspectives and fresh thinking that mesh well with the tenured members. Just as we have reshaped ScottsMiracle-Gro and its leadership team for the future, we are ensuring the Board is aligned with our direction.”
