Vice president of finance, health, hygiene, and consumables, H.B. Fuller

Description

In 2019, Tom Coler was named to the newly created role of vice president of finance for the health, hygiene, and consumables (HHC) segment of St. Paul-based H.B. Fuller, part of a reorganization designed to drive growth and efficiency. Coler built a new global finance team to support the HHC segment, which includes 2,000-plus employees and 33 manufacturing locations and generated $1.3 billion in revenue in 2019.

When Covid-19 hit, Coler and other company leaders quickly adapted. Despite the challenging market environment, the HHC segment recorded strong organic growth and double-digit profit improvement.
