Electrolux named Nolan Pike Senior Vice President and General Manager for its North American cooking business.
The previous head of North American Cooking, John Terzo, is retiring after 32 years with Electrolux. Terzo has headed the division since 1996. Among his contributions to the business was leading Electrolux cooking to a number one position in North America. He is working with Pike to facilitate the transition.
Pike most recently worked for Sears as Kenmore Brand vice president and general manager. Pike also spent many years in manufacturing and led the development, launch, and product management of several notable cooking lines.
“Nolan’s product knowledge and ability to merchandize complements our brand strength and our commitment to innovation,” Jack Truong, president and CEO of Electrolux Major Appliances North America.
Pike holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas, San Antonio and an MBA from Lehigh University. He will report directly to Truong and will be a member of the company’s North American leadership team. He officially joined the company on December 2 and will be based in Charlotte.
