Veteran Oneida Execs Return To Lead Company
The Oneida Group has expanded its leadership ranks with the appointment of three senior executives, all of whom have extensive prior experience with the company. Bert Filice has been named President and Chief Sales Officer. Mike Hanson and Mark Cymanski have been appointed Senior V.P.-Supply Chain and V.P.-Procurement, respectively.
“Expanding our bench of experienced operational leadership is a priority for us as we look to heighten our focus on glass sales and customer service; expand production capacity; enhance relationships with suppliers; and increase product innovation, development and marketing” says Mark Eichhorn, CEO of The Oneida Group. “Bert, Mike and Mark not only bring a depth and breadth of operational expertise, their prior experience with the company will enable them to seamlessly transition into these important roles and accelerate the pace of progress.”
Filice returns to Oneida from Magnotta Wine, where he served as president. He last worked at Oneida in 2011-15 as a senior v.p. with the company (then known as EveryWare Global), leading sales and marketing efforts for both the Anchor Hocking and Oneida brands; prior to that, he spent seven years as senior v.p.-marketing and sales for Anchor Hocking.
Hanson rejoins Oneida from Hollander Sleep Products, where he was SVP. Earlier in his career he was v.p.-supply chain for EveryWare Global.
Cymanski previously served as director of global purchasing for Anchor Hocking.
