Peter Cameron has stepped down as co-chairman of the board of the Lenox Corporation, HomeWorld Business has learned.
Cameron continues as an investor in Lenox and Clarion Capital Partners, the private-equity firm that acquired the assets of Lenox in a bankruptcy auction in 2009. He became Lenox CEO after the acquisition by Clarion Capital, and he became co-chairman of the Lenox board in November 2016 when Katrina Helmkamp was appointed Lenox CEO.
“I’m very proud of the fact that my team was able to take Lenox out of bankruptcy and return it to its rightful place as the market leader for both fine and casual dinnerware, as well as, seasonal gifts, barware and flatware,” Cameron told HomeWorld Business. “Most importantly all of this was accomplished profitably. I remain an active investor in Lenox and in Clarion Capital Partners going forward. I’ll be looking for new adventures and challenges in the future.”
Before taking the helm of Lenox in 2009, Cameron was CEO of Waterford Wedgwood. He previously was the chief executive for such housewares companies as All-Clad Metalcrafters, Farberware and Revere.
