Navarre Named Ex-Cell/Glenoit/Croscill CEO

New York - After a search that has lasted since late August, Patriarch Partners LLC on Monday officially appointed housewares industry veteran Marc Navarre as the new president and ceo of Ex-Cell/Glenoit/Croscill.

Navarre replaces Barry Leonard, who left the company last summer to become the new president and ceo of Welspun USA Inc.

Since then, Emil Giliotti, managing director of the Consumer Goods Platform for majority stakeholder Patriarch, has served as the company's interim ceo.

Lynn Tilton, Patriarch's founder and ceo, said Navarre's appointment follows "an exhaustive search of the best executive leadership personnel" in the durable consumer products and housewares industry.

Navarre most recently was the president and ceo of Groupe SEB, North America, where he oversaw the management of notable housewares brands such as All-Clad, T-Fal, WearEver, Rowenta, Moulinex and Krups, among others. Previously, he served as the president and ceo of All-Clad Metal Crafters, and held various other senior marketing and sales positions within the housewares industry.

"Marc's track record for growth and innovation while the leader of other well-known brands in the housewares industry made him an attractive candidate to drive the future of Croscill, Glenoit and Excell," Tilton said. "His experience and established relationships as a proven global business developer will help foster accelerated expansion and increased market-share of these great brands."
