Mike Dennis, president of the Canadian and Latin American subsidiaries of Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group (GPG) has set his retirement date for March 1. He plans to move into this next chapter in his life by spending time consulting, managing investments, travelling and spending time with his family.

Dennis joined Moen 28 years ago and has had an impact on the industry and the GPG businesses in both Canada and Latin America. He has been actively involved in the plumbing industry, which includes roles as past chairman of the Plumbing Industry Advisory Council (PIAC) and chairman of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH).

”Mike has made numerous contributions in his time with the company,” says Nicholas Fink, president of Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group. ”His knowledge of the industry and passion for his people and the business are second to none. Though he will be missed, we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Fortune Brands are taking the opportunity to restructure a portion of the business and announce new promotions.

”We’re excited to announce the creation of a new Americas Region, effective March 1, to align our Canada, United States and Latin America businesses under one management team,” Fink adds. ”This will further leverage our shared customer base and strengthen the collaboration which already exists among these teams.”

Cheri Phyfer, current president of Moen U.S., will take on an expanded role as president of the GPG Americas. Her responsibilities will include Moen U.S. and both the Moen and House of Rohl businesses in Canada and Latin America.

Peter Fealy, current vice-president and GM of Moen Canada, is promoted to vice-president and general manager of the GPG Canada.
