Small appliance maker Spectrum Brands Holdings elected Andreas Rouvé to the newly created position of Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately.

Rouvé also remains President, International, and will continue to report to Dave Lumley, president and CEO.

“Andreas has provided outstanding operating and financial leadership in Europe and, more broadly, internationally over the years,” Lumley said. “He has deep knowledge and experience with Spectrum Brands’ legacy businesses, and the strong growth we achieved in the last several years in Europe is a testimony to his skills.

Lumley said the company's increasing size, complexity, and global reach means expanding opportunities for sales growth and for improvements in efficiency.

“Broadening the role of President, International to COO will facilitate even closer, day-to-day cooperation and collaboration among our divisions to capitalize on these opportunities," Lumley said. “In fact, Andreas will immediately assume an active role working with our newly formed corporate operations group, which facilitates cross-divisional projects in such large and key areas as information technology, distribution and transportation, shared services and continuous improvement.

Lumley said that, throughout 2014, Rouvé will gradually assume direct, day-to-day operating responsibility for all Spectrum Brands businesses.

Rouvé became President, International in January 2013. Prior to that, starting in 2007, he served as senior vice president and managing director of Spectrum Brands’ European Battery and Personal Care business and subsequently led the integration of the Home Appliances and Pet Supplies European businesses in 2010-2011.

He joined Spectrum Brands in 2002 as chief financial officer of the European Battery division.

Previously, Rouvé spent 13 years with VARTA AG in management positions, including chief financial officer of VARTA Portable Batteries from 1999-2002, Managing Director Asia from 1997-1999 and Director of Finance of 3C Alliance, a U.S. joint venture of VARTA, Duracell and Toshiba, from 1995-1997.
