MIAMI-Al LeFevre, previously chief financial officer of Jarden Consumer Solutions, has become executive vice president and chief financial officer of Jarden Corp., parent of the company’s housewares unit.
LeFevre’s appointment, initially announced in March along with other executive moves, went into effect yesterday. Ian Ashken, who had been the previous chief financial officer and who is Jarden’s co-founder along with Executive Chairman Martin Franklin, has transitioned to the role of vice chairman and president. Ashken, Franklin and CEO James Lillie together constitute Jarden’s Office of the Chairman.
Rounding out the top executive team, John Capps, executive vice president and general counsel, will become executive vice president-administration and general counsel. Capps will add human resources to his current responsibilities coinciding with the retirement of David Tolbert, senior vice president of human resources, in September. Rich Sansone, previously executive vice president-finance, assumed the new role of executive vice president-operations in March.
In a statement issued yesterday, Jarden said LeFevre’s promotion is part of the company’s reorganization to support its ongoing growth plans.
