Andreas Rouvé Elected Chief Operating Officer Of Spectrum Brands Holdings

Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SPB), a global and diversified consumer products company with market-leading brands, announced today that Andreas Rouvé, 52, has been elected to the newly created position of Chief Operating Officer of the Company, effective immediately. Mr. Rouvé, who also remains President, International, will continue to report to Dave Lumley, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Andreas has provided outstanding operating and financial leadership in Europe and, more broadly, internationally over the years,” Mr. Lumley said. “He has deep knowledge and experience with Spectrum Brands’ legacy businesses, and the strong growth we achieved in the last several years in Europe is a testimony to his skills.

“Our Company’s increasing size, complexity and global reach is creating more opportunities for sales growth and efficiency improvements,” said Mr. Lumley. “Broadening the role of President, International to COO will facilitate even closer, day-to-day cooperation and collaboration among our divisions to capitalize on these opportunities.

“In fact, Andreas will immediately assume an active role working with our newly formed corporate operations group, which facilitates cross-divisional projects in such large and key areas as information technology, distribution and transportation, shared services and continuous improvement.

“Over the course of this year, Andreas will gradually assume direct, day-to-day operating responsibility for all of our businesses,” Mr. Lumley said. “Our five experienced division general managers and I look forward to continuing to work with Andreas as we execute on the Company’s strategic growth plans.”

Prior to becoming President, International in January 2013, Mr. Rouvé served as Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Spectrum Brands’ European Battery and Personal Care business since 2007 and subsequently led the integration of the Home Appliances and Pet Supplies European businesses in 2010-2011. He joined Spectrum Brands in 2002 as Chief Financial Officer of the European Battery division.

Previously, Mr. Rouvé worked 13 years with VARTA AG in a variety of management positions, including Chief Financial Officer of VARTA Portable Batteries from 1999-2002, Managing Director Asia from 1997-1999 and Director of Finance of 3C Alliance L.L.P., a U.S. joint venture of VARTA, Duracell and Toshiba, from 1995-1997.
