By Tim Wright | December 3, 2013

Kimberly-Clark Professional has named Tim Feeheley as its new vice president for Kimberly-Clark Professional North America. Feeheley succeeds Richard Thorne, who recently was named to lead Kimberly-Clark Professional's Asia-Pacific Region.

Feeheley joins Kimberly-Clark Professional from JanPak, Inc., an Interline Brands, Inc., company, and a $240 million provider of facilities maintenance and packaging supplies and solutions based in Davidson, NC, where he was president.

"Tim brings a wealth of experience in serving in the markets that we focus on in Kimberly-Clark Professional and he understands our channels, our customers and our competitors,” says Elane Stock, group president for Kimberly-Clark Professional. "We have worked with Tim over the years while he was leading JanPak, a major distributor of our products, and we are excited to have someone of his talent and leadership to join our team." 

Under Feeheley's leadership as president and co-owner of JanPak from 2003 to 2012, the business tripled in size to $240 million through a combination of acquisitions, greenfield expansions and organic growth. Additionally, he led all marketing and investment banking activities for JanPak related to its December 2012 sale to Interline Brands, Inc., a $1.6 billion national provider of facilities maintenance supplies and solutions.
