December 4, 2013,
STOCKHOLM-Stefano Marzano, chief design officer for Electrolux, will retire at the end of this year.
Marzano, whose design career encompasses 40 years, will remain with the housewares giant in a consulting role. He was named to his current post in January 2012, overseeing all design for Electrolux and reporting directly to Keith McLoughlin, the company's president and CEO.
In an Electrolux statement, McLoughlin credited Marzano for creating a structured and strategic global design function. "We will now leverage these achievements operationally to execute our innovation strategy and drive profitable growth," he said.
The company also said it has begun the planning process to search for a new head of design.
