Recognizing the changing healthcare landscape and the needs of today’s consumer, Medline Industries, Inc. formed a new retail consumer division to manage and expand its fast-growing retail consumer business. Mark Scott has been appointed as president to lead the new division.
Scott joined Medline in 2013 as vice president of marketing for retail brands. In his new position, he will lead Medline’s retail consumer business, including CURAD and Medline brands, as well as the company’s private label business. He and his team will develop and implement growth strategies for Medline’s national retail consumer business with all channels, including mass merchandisers, drug stores, grocery stores, warehouse clubs, dollar stores and online retailers.
Prior to joining Medline, Scott worked in the consulting and integrated marketing service business units at Acosta Sales & Marketing. Scott also spent more than 20 years at Kimberly-Clark in various brand marketing, general management, and shopper marketing roles working on some of the most well known family care and personal care brands in North America.
“Retail is a major growth area for Medline and with Mark leading the way, we are making significant investments in terms of human resources, marketing, manufacturing and distribution capabilities,” says Stu Schneider, chief marketing officer for Medline. “Medline’s core strength in the healthcare provider side of our business has been bringing great value to the customer, which can naturally be extended into the retail space where consumers are looking to make their dollar go farther.”
