Three New Execs Join The Oneida Group
Bert Filice is returning to The Oneida Group in the role of president and chief sales officer, while Mike Hanson and Mark Cymanski have been named senior vice president of Supply Chain and vice president of Procurement, respectively.
The Oneida Group recently announced that it 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. In addition, Mike Hanson and Mark Cymanski have been appointed senior vice president of Supply Chain and vice president of 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,” said Mark Eichhorn, CEO. “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.”
A former long-time Oneida Group executive, Filice served from 2011-2015 as a senior vice president with the company (then known as EveryWare Global, Inc.), leading sales and marketing efforts for both the Anchor Hocking and Oneida brands across consumer, B2B, and foodservice markets. Prior to that, he spent seven years as the senior vice president for Marketing and Sales for Anchor Hocking, directing all global sales and marketing efforts. Most recently, he served as president of Magnotta Wine Corp., which is reportedly Canada’s third-largest and most award-winning winery.
Hanson, another Oneida Group veteran, has served since 2016 as senior vice president of Hollander Sleep Products, reportedly the largest supplier of bed pillows in North America. Prior to that, he was an executive consultant focused on leveraging lean operations and supply chain leadership into a primary driver of financial performance. Earlier in his career, he was vice president, Supply Chain for EveryWare Global Inc., where he directed global supply chain, sales and operations planning, production and inventory control, distribution, transportation, forecasting and maintenance, and repair and operations purchasing.
Cymanski previously served as director of Global Purchasing for Anchor Hocking, responsible for generating cost improvements and managing enterprise-wide inventory to budgeted levels while improving customer service levels. Between joining Anchor Hocking originally in 2004 as a global sourcing manager and returning in 2009 as a sourcing and procurement manager, he was a planning manager for Elmer’s Products, which produces a line of adhesive, craft, home repair, and office supply products.
