New York– Joseph Joseph, a leading kitchenware designer and manufacturer, announced last week that housewares industry veteran Don Turano has been appointed to the newly created position of North American president, as part of the company’s overall U.S. growth strategy.

Turano has more than 15 years of experience in the consumer goods arena, with a specialization in sales and marketing across multiple consumer vertical markets. The new appointment is part of the company’s global business strategy, which encompasses reorganization of U.S. operations to support a greater emphasis on the American market, which the company entered five years ago.

“The American market is a key component of our international growth strategy, and as such we will be further investing in the United States from an organizational and operational standpoint,” said Richard Joseph, managing director for Joseph Joseph.

“The position of North American president was created to help define a specific channel and marketing plan and to lead our team here in the U.S.,” he added.

Under Turano’s leadership, Joseph Joseph will continue to introduce products that will be differentiated from the company’s products available in the UK and elsewhere to address U.S. household needs.

Joseph Joseph, founded in 2003 by twin brothers Richard and Antony Joseph, sells to 73 countries. While the company has a core focus on kitchenware, it also produces tableware, storage and cleaning products.
