Former Black Flag Brands president Steve Hill has been named president of Bedford, Mass.-based ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellents, a subsidiary of the Schawbel Corporation.
“We have grown ThermaCELL into the go-to solution for outdoor enthusiasts, and with Steve’s business building expertise, consumers everywhere will know the comfort of our bug-free zone,” said Bill Schawbel, chairman of the Schawbel Corporation. “We are proud to have an experienced consumer products leader who has a long track record of growing insect control businesses.”
Hill has racked up four decades in insect control and consumer products. At Black Flag, his eight-year tenure saw a compound annual growth rate of 27%. Prior to his role there, he worked for The Scotts Company, where he was closely involved with the acquisition of the Ortho and Roundup brands.
“I’m tremendously honored to have the opportunity to work with such a committed and talented team to grow the most effective area repellent on the market,” said Hill.
