Whirlpool Makes New Leadership Appointments

Stimac promoted, Mathew assumes Commercial Laundry business leadership

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Whirlpool Corporation recently appointed two new leadership members to the Commercial Laundry organization, the company reports.

Dave Stimac has transitioned from general manager of Commercial Laundry to senior director, Supply Chain Strategy & Operations, within Whirlpool, where he will lead and drive transformational strategy and optimization across all supply chain and logistics functions.

Stimac began his career with Whirlpool in Supply Chain in 2006. After leading different functions and having considerable experience in product marketing, manufacturing, engineering and consumer services over 14 years, he returns to the Supply Chain organization.

Succeeding him is Jason Mathew, who assumes leadership of the Whirlpool Corporation Commercial Laundry business. He has nearly 15 years of experience within Whirlpool, where he held leadership positions as senior finance manager, then senior category manager and product director for Refrigeration. Most recently, he had been senior director, Kitchen Launch, IoT, since 2020.

In other developments, Chad Lange, who was director of Commercial Laundry Sales/Service/Parts, has decided to leave Whirlpool Corporation for a new opportunity, Whirlpool says. Lange has made significant contributions to the commercial laundry industry and to the Whirlpool Commercial Laundry organization in particular, the company adds.

Succeeding Lange will be Amy Gardner, who will be responsible for global sales, service and parts strategy. Having started at Whirlpool nearly 20 years ago, Gardner has held many roles of increasing responsibility in marketing, merchandising, sales and operations; her latest role was sales director of Retail and Builder.

Stimac and Mathew are already in their new positions. Gardner will officially transition to her new post in July.
