Bradshaw Home named housewares management veteran Tony Hair CEO, replacing interim CEO Mike Rodrigue.
Hair brings to Bradshaw more than three decades of management experience in product development, global sourcing, customer relationship management, sales and business strategy. Hair most recently was president and CEO of Hunter Fan Company. Prior to Hunter, Hair held leadership positions at a number of shelter and housewares companies, including Masonite International, Newell Rubbermaid, Calphalon and Maytag.
“Bradshaw Home has a phenomenal reputation as a leader in the housewares industry. From kitchenware to cleaning products and so much more, the company has a diverse portfolio that is designed to meet consumers’ needs at home as well as strong relationships and distribution with key retailers across the country. I am excited to help elevate the company and its portfolio of brands,” Hair said.
“Tony [Hair] has a well-established background that aligns with the future of Bradshaw. We look forward to building upon Bradshaw’s strong foundation under Tony’s direction,” Rodrigue said.
Rodrigue, operating partner at Arbor Investments, the private equity holder of Bradshaw Home, spent more than 40 years in various leadership positions with Bradshaw International — including board member and CEO — before becoming the company’s interim CEO in April.
Bradshaw Home develops and markets kitchenware and cleaning products under such owned brands GoodCook, Architec, Evercare and Casabella, as well as licensed brands including Mr. Clean, Dawn, CleanOnes, Clorox, and Liquid-Plumr.
