ANAHEIM, Calif.-Ivan Stein has been named CEO at Evriholder Products, while Gary Seehoff has become chairman and founder. Stein will take over the day-to-day responsibility and management of Evriholder, and all senior executives will report directly to him. Previously, Stein was president and Seehoff CEO.

"Over the next six months I will be working very closely with Ivan to transition my day-to-day role to him," said Seehoff. "From almost day one, Ivan and I have grown and managed this business together. For years, we had a dual reporting structure at the day-to-day level with multiple departments essentially reporting to both of us, which sometimes makes it difficult and cumbersome. With the management transition, we are streamlining the reporting lines and processes."

Seehoff continued, "At Evriholder, we have worked very hard to create a certain culture, one that is successful, entrepreneurial, growth oriented, collaborative, creative, challenging and fun. Our growth plan is multifaceted and includes organic as well as acquisitive growth."

Stein added, "Gary's leadership over the years has been instrumental in our company's continued success. Gary will remain in place-full time and fully engaged-and will continue on the board as an active director. By moving into his new position, he will be able to focus more on strategies and opportunities to grow, including additional product lines, new licenses and acquisitions."
