Green Innovations Ltd. has added Philip C. Rundle to the Miami-based company’s strategic advisory board. Rundle is a business leader with more than 20 years of domestic and international experience in the tissue, diaper, wipes and feminine care products business.
“Philip’s direct industry experience at Kimberly-Clark and more recently at a leading U.S.A. tissue manufacturer make him ideally suited to help guide the Green Innovations team as we continue to execute our business strategy,” says Bruce Harmon, CEO of Green Innovations. “I look forward to working with him to gain and apply his unique insight to potentially accelerate and expand our growth plans.”
During his career, Rundle spent 16 years with Kimberly-Clark, a $21 billion leading international consumer goods company. In 1999, after holding various positions within Kimberly-Clark, including marketing director and business unit director for South Africa and the U.S., Rundle was named VP, Central and Eastern Europe. In 2003, he was named VP of NATO brand development, which brought him back to the U.S. In this role, Rundle led the effort to revitalize revenue and profit growth and directed an international team of employees. His most recent industry role has been as CEO of a leading tissue manufacturer based in North America, where his efforts led to double-digit growth and brand leadership for the past three years. He currently consults for a leading private equity firm on potential acquisitions in the consumer products group (CPG) field.
Rundle has a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Damelin College and an advanced management diploma in business administration from the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa.
“In many ways, Green Innovations is where my previous company was when I first joined their team a few years ago,” says Rundle. “I was able to use my industry contacts, insight and experience to help establish them as a leading paper products supplier in the U.S.A. very quickly. Now I’m eager to utilize some of what I learned to help Green Innovations build their brands and achieve their sales and distribution objectives.”
Green Innovations’ strategic advisory board now consists of four members; Kalpesh Parmar, Mark DeFilippo, Michael Perfetti and Rundle.
Green Innovations, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Green Hygienics Inc., is the exclusive licensed North American distributor of American Hygienics Corp.’s 100% tree-free bamboo-based product line, including personal care and paper-based goods.
