Silberman has worked in the sustainability and impact space for more than 25 years and began her sustainability career as a consultant with APCO Worldwide working with Fortune 100 companies, NGOs, foundations, government and trade associations. 

Tetreault joins Dollar Tree from Stanley Black & Decker, the world’s largest tool company, where she was vice president of Enterprise & Executive Communications. There, she worked to embed the company’s purpose and establish a robust communication function for the company’s more than 60,000 employees worldwide.
