Wolf Announces Organizational Restructuring for 2012

Wolf, the kitchen cabinet and building products supplier based in York, PA, has announced changes to its business and management structure, as part of an overall supply chain reorganization.

Among these changes is the renaming of Wolf Building products. The newly rebranded Wolf Home Products division will source and sell American-made Wolf-branded products through Wolf and other channels both in the U.S. and internationally.

Additionally, there will be a leadership realignment, the product of streamlining the number of Wolf’s overall business units from 13 to seven. In addition to his role as President of the Wolf Organization, Craig Danielson will serve as President of the new Wolf Home Products division.  Brad Kostelich will assume the position of President of Wolf, formerly called Wolf Distributing Company.  Mike Sessinger will serve as Executive Vice President of Sales.  Rick Post, Bob Lett, Joe Facini and Mark Simmers will serve as Regional Vice Presidents in WOLF’s Northeast, Mid-Atlantic Building Products, Mid-Atlantic Kitchen and Bath and Southeast business units, respectively. 

The restructuring will also create two shared services divisions: Wolf Support Services, which will be led by Patty Cobaugh, who will assume the title of Executive Vice President, and the Wolf Corporate Division, which will be led by Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Michael Newsome.

Wolf’s restructure, which will go into effect immediately, is part of a major strategic shift that began in 2010, when Wolf embraced a new business model. The company, once a traditional two-step distributor, has positioned itself as a sourcing company that focuses on identifying and developing products designed solely to meet the needs of independent dealers and their professional contractor customers.
