Husqvarna Group named Alan Shaw--previously of Whirlpool, Murray, and Char-Broil--to run its Americas business.

Earl Bennett, who was Acting Head of Americas since January 23, 2013, will resume his position as Vice President and General Counsel for Americas.

Shaw will be an executive vice president and head of business area Americas. He will also become member of Husqvarna group management. The changes take effect Aug. 15, 2013.

Shaw has 25 years of global experience in consumer durables, including barbeque grills and accessories, lawn and garden equipment, and major home appliances.

Shaw comes to Husqvarna from barbeque grill producer Char-Broil LLC in the United States, where he served as president and CEO starting in 2005.

From 2003 to 2005, Shaw was president and CEO of the consumer lawn and garden equipment maker Murray Group, also in the United States.

From 1987-2003, Shaw held numerous positions with home appliance maker Whirlpool Corp.

Shaw holds an MBA from Indiana University and a BS from the University of Idaho.

"Together with my successor Kai Waern, I would like to welcome Alan Shaw to the Group. In Alan Shaw we have found a strong leader with a solid track record of managing brand driven businesses," says Hans Linnarson, president and CEO of Husqvarna Group. "I would also like to thank Earl Bennett for his valuable contributions while acting as Head of Americas for the past five months."
