Koozie Group Promotes Pierre Montaubin to Chief Product and Sustainability Officer
Koozie Group, Clearwater, FL, announced the promotion of Pierre Montaubin to the newly-created position of chief product and sustainability officer. This marks the first time in the supplier's history that sustainability has held a seat in the C-suite.
Montaubin has 14 years of experience in the promotional products industry. In his new role, he will continue to focus on driving innovation with new products and brands that align with the company's Keep It. Give It. initiative. He will retain his general management role for the product innovation, sourcing, compliance and vendor relationship teams both in the U.S. and Asia. Additionally, he will spearhead the company's sustainability efforts.
"This is a critical time in the promotional products industry as we address the issues facing our planet," Montaubin said.

We've made great strides already by exceeding our KG Factor goal with more than 70% of our portfolio now carrying this designation, and we have big plans to carry this program forward to achieve even loftier goals."
Previously, Montaubin held operational and financial project management roles with BIC, Neuf Telecom and Unilog Management Consulting, with clients such as Louis Vuitton, Gerflor and Riso.
