In the role, Magee will report to Ace’s chief merchandising and sales officer, John Surane.

“Mike is a strategic leader who brings a wealth of experience and new perspective to this role,” Surane says. “We’re thrilled to welcome Mike to the Ace family and look forward to the contributions he and his team will make to further grow our wholesale business.”

For the past 12 years, Magee led the commercial strategy for several consumer product companies, including Crayola. Previously, he has served in senior leadership roles at Newell Brands, Sara Lee, Radio Flyer and Seagram’s.

In November, Ace announced increased revenue and income in its third-quarter 2019 financial results.
