Fortune Brands makes two VP appointments

Sagsen-Ercel has been promoted to VP strategy after only three months with the company.

Fortune Brands Home & Security has named Jason Baab VP of mergers and acquisitions, as well as Elif Sagsen-Ercel as VP strategy.

Baab will be leaving his role as director of business development at Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. As VP M&A, he will oversee the company's growth strategy and portfolio expansion initiatives via the acquisition pipeline.

“Jason brings a wealth of strong corporate and operating company deal experience both domestically and internationally,” said Chuck Elias. “He is a great addition to the team as we look to strengthen our market-leading brands and operating companies globally to create shareholder value.”

Sagsen-Ercel has been promoted from her current role as senior director of strategy. She is credited with playing a large role in the development of the company's portfolio strategy and various operating company strategies.

She has been with the company since July; previously, she oversaw strategic planning and innovation at Hillshire Brands. Her C.V. also includes a role as senior director of strategy and corporate development for Sara Lee.

The two will report to Chuck Elias, who was recently elected SVP strategy and corporate development.
