Revolving Door: Method Names New CEO

Our favorite maker of design-savvy, eco-friendly home products has chosen a new leader. San Francisco-based Method announced today that Drew Fraser will take over as president and chief executive officer of the company. Formerly a senior vice president at Whirlpool, Fraser will replace interim CEO Dan Swander starting June 15. Before joining Whirlpool in 2004, Fraser spent ten years working at Clorox and previously held sales and marketing roles at Procter & Gamble. Privately held Method was founded in 2000 by Adam Lowry and Eric Ryan, who enlisted designer Joshua Handy to create the curvy (and 100% carbon neutral) packaging that has become a company signature.
