NEW YORK-Joseph Joseph has appointed housewares industry veteran Don Turano to the newly created position of North American president. Turano has more than 15 years of experience in the consumer goods arena, including a stint as vice president of sales and marketing for All-Clad.

The new Joseph Joseph appointment is part of the company's global business strategy, which encompasses reorganization of U.S. operations to support a greater emphasis on the American market. One of the most important goals of this restructuring is to further entrench the brand and its products into the daily lives of American consumers, according to the company.

"The American market is a key component of our international growth strategy, and as such, we will be further investing in the United States from an organizational and operational standpoint," said Richard Joseph, managing director for Joseph Joseph. "The position of North American president was created to help define a specific channel and marketing plan and to lead our team here in the U.S. Don Turano is the ideal candidate for this position, and we are confident in his ability to successfully lead our efforts in North America."
