USA – Gene Colleran was appointed as the new CEO of the Polyconcept Group on April 8, 2015. Colleran assumes the full responsibility for the group comprising of the three main divisions Polyconcept North America (PCNA), PF Concept and Polyconcept International Markets (PCIM). Colleran succeeds Michael Bernstein in the role, who will continue to be actively involved as a member of the Polyconcept Board of Directors.
After holding several executive positions at Newell Rubbermaid, Colleran was most recently employed as CEO of Griffon Home and Building Products. Michael Bernstein was employed by Polyconcept for ten years, initially as Vice Chairman of the Polyconcept Group and CEO of PCNA since 2005. In 2012, he took over as group CEO. “We’re fortunate to be able to make this transition on our own terms from a position of strength,“ stated Bernstein. “We are growing and healthy with an exciting future ahead. After 10 years at Polyconcept, I am personally ready to step aside and to welcome Gene as our next group leader to continue our positive momentum. Gene has a proven track record of success and he brings a diverse set of experience to our organization. I’m confident that his vision, leadership and expertise will contribute to our continued success.“
