Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group Announces Retirement of Mike Dennis and Unveils New Executive Leadership Structure for Americas Region
North Olmsted, OH… Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group (GPG) is both delighted and saddened to announce the retirement of Mike Dennis, president of the Canadian and Latin American subsidiaries, on March 1. He plans to move into this next chapter in his life by spending time consulting, managing investments, and the part he is most looking forward to, travelling and spending time with his family.
“Mike has made numerous contributions in his time with the company,” said Nicholas Fink, president of Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group. “His knowledge of the industry and passion for his people and the business are second to none. Though he will be missed, we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Dennis joined Moen 28 years ago and has had an impact on the industry and the GPG businesses in both Canada and Latin America. He has been actively involved in the plumbing industry, which includes roles as past Chairman of the Plumbing Industry Advisory Council (PIAC) and Chairman of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH). Over the years, his effect on the Canadian market and team has been extensive, and his talent for leading and motivating has brought the business great success.
In 2019, Fortune Brands will continue to focus on strengthening the GPG for continued growth. In doing so, they are taking the opportunity to restructure a portion of the business and announce new promotions.
“We’re excited to announce the creation of a new Americas Region, effective March 1, to align our Canada, United States and Latin America businesses under one management team,” Fink adds. “This will further leverage our shared customer base and strengthen the collaboration which already exists among these teams.”
