SEATTLE, Wash.-Stanley, a PMI brand that makes steel vacuum bottles, has named Kelly Kraus vice president, responsible for overseeing key functions of the Stanley brand including sales, product management, marketing and sales operations.

Executive Vice President Mike Bross had assumed responsibility for the role when the company reorganized two and half years ago. Kraus reports to Bross.

Kraus joins PMI most recently from REI, where she was director of private-brand management across all product categories. Before REI, Kraus was director of sales and marketing at Werner Paddles and held sales leadership roles at Cascade Designs and MSR.

"We are excited to welcome an industry veteran of Kelly's caliber to join our team," Bross said. "I am positive that Kelly's expertise combined with the vision, drive and camaraderie of the Stanley team will bring even more growth and success for the brand."
