Sarah Dye

Brand Activation ManagerStarted in January 2011

I have a degree in Packaging Engineering from Michigan State (go Spartans!), and that’s the field I started my career in at Kraft. After a few years, I realized that I wanted to be on the marketing side, but didn’t think it was an option for me. But by delivering on my objectives and building my leadership competencies and internal network, I was able to move into a packaging role at Newell Brands, then into Channel Marketing, followed by Customer Marketing and finally into Brand Marketing, where I am now. I’m so thankful for the flexibility to work in different departments on both consumer and professional brands. And since I’m from Michigan and worked in New Jersey for 3 years, I was thrilled to be moving to somewhere warm like Atlanta!

Jennifer Watts

Vice President of SalesStarted in April 2015

I believe that the life skills of working with team dynamics, tenacity and strong leadership came from my time on the soccer and lacrosse teams at Babson College, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Finance and an MBA in Marketing. I started out my career at Kraft Foods, where I worked for 22 years in various roles before coming to Newell Rubbermaid. I chose Newell because of the high-energy, passionate people and the amazing brands the company has. I feel that there is potential to grow and develop these brands with our consumers and customers. I was also drawn to Newell because of the company’s commitment to consumers and identifying and addressing trends.

Senior Vice President of SalesStarted in October 2014

I am a graduate of UNH with a degree in Business Management – I also played college basketball there. And I joined the Newell Rubbermaid Sales team after 27 years of working at Kraft Foods in various functions – both domestically and globally. I found that Newell was the right fit for me because I appreciate the leadership’s commitment to growth and the iconic family of stable brands.

Heather Oliver

Sr. Category Strategy ManagerStarted in January 2014

During my time at Kraft Foods, Mondelez and Pfizer, I had the opportunity to work in both sales and category management. I really enjoyed supporting the growth of well-known brands such as Oreo, Chips Ahoy, Planters, Ritz Lunchables and Jell-O (just to name a few!). Currently, my role at Newell is all about driving growth in the writing segment. I work cross-functionally with counterparts in both development and delivery to identify opportunities for growing our retail brands. I love that my role allows me to connect with so many different colleagues and functions throughout the organization.

Sr. Category Strategy ManagerStarted in January 2014

I started my career as a process engineer at Procter & Gamble, leading production process improvements in manufacturing facilities. Working with Brand Marketing on new product launches allowed me to see manufacturing as a small piece of the big puzzle to building a brand. Their focus on meeting consumer needs and ensuring that all touch points led to a positive experience was both intriguing and inspiring. So I returned to school and obtained my MBA with a concentration in marketing. Since then, I’ve worked at major CPG companies in various Brand and Trade Marketing roles – using customer insights to develop new products and launch plans that drive growth. I truly enjoy the team dynamic that is involved in building a brand.

I chose Newell Rubbermaid because of the company’s commitment to building superior brands via a culture that drives growth and embraces change. I admire its dedication to employees through development programs and work/life benefits, and also their commitment to giving back to the communities we work in.
