Masco makes a couple of top-brass promotions

Richard O'Reagan

Masco Corporation has promoted Richard O'Reagan to the title of group president, global plumbing, as well as brought on Jai Shah as president of Delta Faucet Company and group VP of Masco Corporation.

O'Reagan, who was previously serving as president of Delta Faucet, will now be responsible for that company as well as Hansgrohe, BrassCraft, Masco Canada, Liberty Hardware, Mirolin and Brasstech. He's been with the company since 2008, when he joined as VP sales at Delta Faucet. He held a similar role at Mansfield Plumbing Products prior to that.

"Richard has consistently demonstrated his ability to develop high-performing teams, drive focus on the customer and deliver outstanding results," said president and CEO Keith Allman. "With his extensive experience in the plumbing industry and his proven leadership capabilities, I am confident that Richard will drive growth and continued innovation in this platform."

Meanwhile, Shah, who has been with Masco since 2003, will take over for O'Reagan (and then some). He will be moving on from his most recent role as VP/chief human resource officer. His resume also includes stints at JohnsonDiversey, Unilever and The Molson Companies.

"Over the years, Jai has contributed to the financial and strategic development of the Company," added Allman. "He is focused on the customer and, I believe, he will be instrumental in directing Delta into a new era of industry leadership."
