TARRYTOWN, N.Y.--Belgian-based cookware company GreenPan has opened its first major office in the U.S. here, as it prepares to increase both its sales and presence in North America and South America.

Industry veteran and former independent sales representative Rick Lapine has been appointed president of the division, which will serve as the sales, marketing and product development hub for the Americas. His team will be announced shortly, according to the company.
