Bristan Group CEO Martin Mongan has announced his plans to step down at the end of this year, with current chief commercial officer Jen Cassidy named as his replacement.

Cassidy will step into the role on January 1, 2025, and plans to work closely with Mongan for the remainder of this year to facilitate a smooth transition into the role.

Reflecting on Mongan’s legacy at the helm, Bristan says its current CEO has managed to build on the brand’s past successes by focusing on consumers, and has implemented a specific focus on product development over the last several years.

Bristan Group also says that under Mongan’s tenure, the company has seen its best engagement scores to date.

“I am delighted to be able to hand over my role to Jen and look forward to working alongside her for the next few months as she transitions into the role,” Mongan said, adding, “the powerful message it sends, not only promoting from within the business, but also that Bristan Group has its first female CEO is a legacy I am extremely proud of.”

Cassidy first joined the company as its chief marketing officer in August 2021, and her prior career history includes senior roles at companies such as Wolseley, Kohler Mira and Linn Products. Since joining the company, Bristan says that Cassidy’s ability to lead and inspire its teams has resulted in improved performance across the business.

Cassidy announced: “Having fallen in love with Bristan Group and its extremely talented people from the moment I joined, I am honoured to be given the opportunity to lead the business, to build on Martin’s work and to continue to deliver on the company’s strategic roadmap.”

Jai Shah, group president of Masco Corporation – Bristan’s parent company – said: “I would like to take the opportunity to thank Martin for the role he has played in Bristan Group’s development over several years. It has been a pleasure to work with him on successfully delivering the strategic plan and seeing the business develop under his leadership.

“I am very excited to support Jen’s appointment as CEO and am confident she is the right person to lead the team on the next exciting stage of Bristan Group’s journey,” said Jai Shah, Group President, Masco Corporation.”
