Jelmar Names Jeffrey Pozen As New President And Chief Operating Officer
Jelmar, LLC, a provider of household cleaning products including its CLR Brands™ and Tarn-X® product lines, has announced the promotion of Jeffrey Pozen to president and chief operating officer. He succeeds Alison Gutterman, who remains the CEO of Jelmar.
In his seven years at Jelmar, Pozen has served as the company’s chief of staff, chief financial officer, and chief strategy officer, and has been responsible for the company’s innovation, operating and finance business functions. In his new role, Pozen will expand his focus to include business growth and strategy through the sales and marketing business units with a focus on new product offerings, extended product configuration and expanding distribution.
“Jeff’s expertise in strategically growing businesses through multifaceted initiatives, along with his deep appreciation and knowledge of Jelmar, is incredibly valuable to our business,” Gutterman said. “I confidently pass this role onto Jeff, and we are thrilled to see him step in to help Jelmar navigate continued growth and success.”
Pozen’s familiarity with the Gutterman family and Jelmar begins far before his current tenure. He began his career in certified public accounting where he had the opportunity to work directly with the Gutterman family and Jelmar. He has continued to build a career-long relationship with the family-owned company and all three Gutterman generations who have been at the helm.
“Having known Jelmar and the Gutterman family for my entire career, I’ve seen first-hand the passion and perseverance they have put in to create and sustain a successful company for well over 50 years,” Pozen said. “It is truly an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to lead this incredible team and continue to drive business growth.”
Prior to Jelmar, Pozen was a partner with RSM US LLP, an audit, tax, and accounting firm. In his 28 years at RSM and its predecessors, he focused on family-owned, closely-held companies. Pozen’s promotion is effective immediately. He will report directly to Gutterman.
