Incipio Group has named former Sears Holdings exec Tom Park its new CEO.
Park, who most recently served as a president of Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard, joins the accessory manufacturer during a busy period for the category. Incipio owns the Griffin Technology, Incase, Clamcase and Tavik+ brands, and it recently sold off the Braven brand to Zagg.
Park joined Sears during a period in which the retailer was trialing its own line of smart-home devices. While the chain eventually discontinued the effort, he also led the charge of further maximizing the Kenmore brand, including bringing Kenmore-branded appliances to Amazon and licensing it overseas.

More recently, Parks saw his Sears portfolio diminishing with the sale of Craftsman to Stanley Black & Decker last January, and the potential purchase of Kenmore by Sears’ chairman, CEO and chief investor Eddie Lampert.
Prior to Sears, Park held a variety positions with Belkin International, including within its Linksys division, and he was also the president of The Disney Stores.
