The Wooster Brush Company’s board of directors announced late last week that it has elected Ben Maibach as the company’s 10th President.

Maibach brings more than 20 years of sales and marketing experience, including time as Vice President of Sales at Waxman Consumer Group as well as multiple sales and marketing roles while at Moen and Newell Rubbermaid.

"On behalf of all our employees, we want to thank Bill for his leadership over the past decade," Maibach said. "Following Bill as the next president is quite an honor, but we both agree that the success of Wooster Brush has never been about one person. The combined efforts of our 600+ dedicated employees will always be what makes our company great."

As part of this transition, Fagert will maintain certain administrative and financial responsibilities while he continues to assist and mentor Maibach in his new role.

Fagert adds, "Ben is the right guy at the right time. He is a bright, proactive, optimistic leader with the skill sets to take Wooster Brush to new, higher levels. Ben has often been involved behind the scenes and is well prepared for his new role."

Scott Rutledge, Vice President of Marketing, will also be expanding his role as a result of this leadership change. As of May 1, Rutledge will become the new Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
