Newell Rubbermaid to open global e-commerce hub in NYC


Newell Rubbermaid is looking to expand its e-commerce business and accelerate its online revenue growth worldwide by opening a global e-commerce hub in New York. The move will create more than 30 new positions.

"The world-class e-commerce talent we will recruit will have the opportunity to lead global online initiatives, experiment with new technologies, and be part of a global team whose mission is to unlock growth opportunities for our iconic brands and valued customers," said Mark Tarchetti, Newell Rubbermaid's chief development officer. "E-commerce is our single biggest growth opportunity and this is a transformative building block of the Growth Game Plan."

"We are setting the course for global e-commerce with an omni-channel approach for our brands, increasing collaboration and growth with our customers, fostering new business development opportunities and creating a seamless experience for our consumers," said Jeremy Liebowitz, VP, global e-commerce. "The ongoing expansion of our global e-commerce team will help us work towards our ambition to enable anyone in our key countries across the world to find Newell Rubbermaid products online and purchase them on any device."

The new e-commerce team will include analysts and production and operation specialists for each of Newell Rubbermaid's business segments and customers. The strengthened analytics capability will offer deeper analysis and insights to digital consumers' purchase behavior, the company said, adding that the new production and operations roles will enable Newell Rubbermaid to deliver more creative assets to its retail customers. The e-commerce team in New York will work alongside existing e-commerce talent globally, including larger content optimization teams in North Carolina and at the company's headquarters in Georgia.
