Rubbermaid appoints new Europe head13th of June 2011
Rubbermaid Commercial Products, US-based specialist in professional cleaning and hygiene products, has appointed Anna Whitton as its new vice president and general manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa. She is based at the company's new European headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
Whitton comes to Europe after being with parent company Newell Rubbermaid for 14 years - most recently as director of marketing for North America with another business in the group, Lenox. She has also held positions in operations, human resources and marketing.
Commenting on her appointment Whitton said: "In Europe, we have a great team of people with a real sense of purpose, a passion for our brand and a strong desire to win. My vision is to leverage our brand, exploit the breadth of our current product portfolio, extend our innovation leadership position and nurture the amazingly strong customer/end user relationships that we already have in Europe and the emerging markets in the Middle East and Africa to place RCP products in away-from-home locations across the entire region."
