The combined department will be headed up by Stefan Gaa, the current healthcare marketing director and include a team of 70 marketers.
The changes follow Phil Thomas’s promotion from UK marketing director of household & personal care to the position of global category director for the global surface care division, which includes cleaning brand Cillit Bang.
Gaa will take responsibility for the strategic planning and execution of marketing for the RB UK portfolio.
Gaa was previously the marketing director for RB in India and before that the global marketing manager for its dishwasher detergent brand Finish.
RB hopes that the restructure will cement “closer working across the brand teams”.
The changes are effective as of Monday (19 July).
The FMCG manufacturer integrated its businesses in April, following an announcement in December. RB UK is headed up by former general manager of RB Healthcare Camillo Pane.
Gaa says: “RB UK has a reputation for innovative, effective marketing, and combining the teams brings this talent together adding to the flexibility and creativity we will be able to harness across the brands.”
