Hyde Tools Inc. has named Rob Scoble as its new executive vice president and chief operating officer. He will oversee Hyde’s professional products and industrial blade divisions.
Scoble joined Hyde as vice president of sales and marketing in October 2005 and was charged with stepping up new product offerings marketed worldwide under the Hyde brand name. In his four years with Hyde, he has overseen huge brand growth, nearly doubling the Hyde brand share and achieving clear brand dominance in its primary industry, as reported in independent research by the Paint & Decorating Retailers Association.
Over the past two years, Scoble and his staff also substantially increased company revenues derived from new and innovative products in categories where Hyde is a leader. These include hand tools for the painting, drywall and wall-covering industries sold though retail and industrial distribution channels.
Scoble will take on full operational leadership. He will also oversee Industrial Blade Solutions, the Hyde division that manufactures precision blades for a wide range of industrial and food-processing applications.
