It is our pleasure to announce to you that Newell Brands has restructured its selling team to provide better service to you and your customers. We streamlined the structure by creating a dedicated selling team which will provide more efficient service to the Independent Dealer channel and provide for a focused, strategic partnership moving forward. This change will take place immediately. Outlined below are the changes we have incorporated:

1. Responsibility for ONLY Writing/Office, DYMO, Elmers and X-Acto. This will allow us to have a more concentrated focus on growing your writing, labeling and adhesive businesses

2. Independent Dealer dedicated field selling resources to execute our National programs/promotions

3. Increased alignment per region to better partner in the field and at the end user level

Also, effective immediately, Rubbermaid Commercial Products will be managed by a new sales team. The talented Inside Sales team in Winchester, VA will service all the needs for IDC Office customers. They can provide product specs and pricing information, and work with the Rubbermaid outside sales team to support with any consumer calls or regional tradeshows.

Eco Products will be managed by a network of manufacturers rep groups nationally to assist in growing your sustainable food service business.

Contact information for the Rubbermaid Commercial and Eco teams is on the IS website.
