NEW YORK–Waterford, Wedgwood Royal Doulton will revitalize its corporate hospitality division, the company said. To that end, the company and Oneida Ltd. yesterday agreed to end their licensing partnership on August 1, 2012.

The strategy of WWRD’s hospitality division, led by Jonathan Witmer, group vice president and general manager, global hospitality, is to bring the “finest in the luxury lifestyle products to the world’s most exclusive hospitality customers.”

Part of the company’s multiyear growth plan, according to Witmer, is to aggressively leverage growth opportunities in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
