A local maker of consumer oral care products has a new C-suite executive.
Grand Rapids-based Ranir said yesterday it hired Maureen Bryan as chief manufacturing and supply chain officer.
She will serve as a director of the integrated global manufacturing and supply chain group, which oversees teams in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
“I am excited to join the Ranir team and am looking forward to working with the industry’s leading provider of oral care products,” Bryan said. “Ranir is dedicated to delivering affordable, healthy smiles in millions of households every day, and I’m proud to be a part of that mission.”
Bryan brings more than 25 years of strategic business planning, global manufacturing, supply chain support and management with companies such as Dow Chemical, S.C. Johnson and KIK Custom Products.

“We are very fortunate to have Maureen join our team, as she brings extensive supply chain and plant management experience to our growing business, along with global expertise, which is vital to our operations,” said Rich Sorota, CEO, Ranir.
Bryan obtained an executive M.B.A from Northwestern University and an engineering degree from McGill.
