Carpenito, Isaacson Take On New Roles At Gemline

12 Jan 2023 3:50 PM | Cassondra Franze (Administrator)

Gemline (PPAI 113948, S11) has announced leadership changes at the Lawrence, Massachusetts-based company. Frank Carpenito, currently the supplier’s president, has been promoted to president and chief executive officer, effective immediately. Jonathan Isaacson, currently chair and CEO, will become executive chair.

Carpenito was named Gemline’s president in 2019, following a five-year term on the company’s board of directors.

  • Prior to joining the company, he spent three decades in the consumer product industry, including CEO and president positions.
  • Carpenito has held leadership roles at BigMouth, Inc., Procter & Gamble, Pepsi-Cola and Newell-Rubbermaid/Berol, among others.
  • He currently serves on the board of One Family, Inc., a Massachusetts non-profit committed to ending family homelessness.

As president, Carpenito was responsible for the day-to-day running of Gemline. As president and CEO, he will retain overall responsibility for all functions, day-to-day operations and the implementation of the company’s strategic plans. He will also play an increased role in supporting Isaacson’s efforts in the industry and community.

Isaacson, as executive chair, will shift his focus toward Gemline’s vision and strategy, continuous improvement and industry outreach.

  • He intends to also expand his efforts to support the supplier’s commitment to corporate social responsibility.

“Gemline has achieved tremendous growth over the last three years under Frank’s day-to-day leadership, despite a very challenging environment,” says Isaacson. “I am confident that, by staying true to our core values, delivering an exceptional customer experience, innovating relentlessly, and developing our internal teams, Frank will ensure we continue to grow and prosper and consistently exceed the expectations of our distributor partners.”

Carpenito says, “I am honored that Jonathan has entrusted me to lead Gemline. Gemline holds a very special place in the industry thanks to Jonathan’s many years of exceptional leadership. He continues to be a well-respected leader and visionary in our industry, while also serving as an effective mentor to me and many others across our company.

“I look forward to continuing to partner with him and the entire Gemline team to realize our ambitious strategic goals.”
