Jonas Samuelson has been appointed chief operations officer and head of the company's global operations in major appliances, and will continue in his current role as chief financial officer.

Marykay Kopf has been designated chief marketing officer, overseeing brand management, marketing and design.

All appointments take effect on Feb. 1, and all three executives report to Keith McLoughlin, who succeeded Hans Straberg as president and chief executive officer on Jan. 1.
