IMAGEN Brands, parent company of Crown Products and Vitronic, announced that it has hired Paul Lage as its new president, replacing former president Lori Kates.

Lage was previously at Gill-Line, where he was CEO since 2010. Gill replaced Lage with Jamie Fain last week.

I look forward to working with Paul and the team at IMAGEN Brands, as we continue to invest significantly in this business. We are committed to building a talent-driven, customer-centric business at IMAGEN Brands. We also wish Lori the best as she pursues other opportunities, and thank her for her leadership at IMAGEN Brands.”

Before his tenure at Gill-Line, Lage was with Norwood and BIC Graphic. He also served as PPAI chairman of the board, and is an inductee of the PPAI Hall of Fame.

“This is a wonderful opportunity with a great company,” Lage said. “We look forward to building on all the positive aspects of the company and creating even more exceptional products and experiences.”
