Shen Wei USA, a provider of hand protection products in the healthcare and industrial markets, has hired two former Ansell executives, Thomas Draskovics and Bob Gaither, to lead a new business entity, SW Safety Solutions (SWSS), headquartered in Union City, CA.
As an independent unit, SWSS will leverage Shen Wei USA’s more than 30 years of success in developing single-use gloves for barrier protection, while focusing on initiatives to expand total hand health innovations.
Currently CMO at SWSS, Draskovics was most recently President and General Manager for Ansell’s speciality markets global business unit. He brings with him a long track record of successful business leadership and strategic marketing across a range of B2B industries.
Gaither joins SWSS as CCO. He was previously Senior Vice President and Regional Director for North America at Ansell, where he had more than 35 years of hand protection experience in the industrial and medical markets.
SWSS Chief Executive Belle Chou said: 'Building out our hand health initiatives through SWSS means relying on our rich history of developing glove technologies that promote comfort, skin health and personal safety.
'Combining this history with the deep industry knowledge both Tom and Bob possess puts SWSS in the ideal position to develop the next generation of reliable, trusted hand healthcare products.'
