Lamson Products Names Jalbert President

LongCap Lamson Products LLC has named Gary Jalbert president.

The appointment is part of a corporate restructuring as the longtime cutlery manufacturer continues to grow its specialty retailer business.

Jalbert, with a consumer package goods background, brings operational expertise to the company. Jalbert has held executive positions at Uncle Harry’s, Just Desserts, Steak-Umms and Carvel, among others.

Lamson has also retained the services of the Highway 87 Consulting team of housewares veterans Michael Karyo and Jessica Karyo. Together with Jalbert, Lamson stated they will help support and manage the specialty retail channel and the sales representative network.

The company will also be returning to the International Home + Housewares Show, to be held March 10 to 13 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Lamson said it will feature several new products, in-store merchandising displays and collateral materials.
