Holding company RPM International Inc. announced late last week (March 1) that Edward J. Voorhees III, president of Rust-Oleum North America, will take over the role of CEO of the Rust-Oleum Group (Vernon Hills Illinois), effective immediately.

As CEO of Rust-Oleum Group, Voorhees will provide the company with strategic and tactical direction on a global scale.

“It is tremendously satisfying to hand the reins over to Ed,” said Reed. “As a person who has been by my side, as a partner, every step of the way, he is truly and uniquely qualified to continue to lead the sustained growth that Rust-Oleum has enjoyed over the last decade.”

Reed joined Rust-Oleum in 1983, and became president and CEO in 2006. He was primarily responsible for day-to-day operations for all Rust-Oleum companies.

“At RPM, we place great emphasis on succession planning for our group and operating company leaders, and anticipate a smooth and seamless transition over the coming weeks,” stated Frank C. Sullivan, chairman and CEO of RPM. “Tom has helped turn Rust-Oleum into one of our best-known consumer brands and Ed is well suited to continue to lead the business and drive its growth.”
