Faucet maker Delta changes presidents

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Carmel-based Delta Faucet Co. has a new president after a pair of promotions by parent company Masco Corp., the companies announced.

Richard O’Reagan, president of Delta since 2011, has been promoted to group president of global plumbing for Taylor, Mich.-based Masco. He will be replaced by Jai Shah, Delta vice president and chief human resource officer.

O'Reagan started working for the Carmel plumbing-parts manufacturer in 2008 as vice president of sales after a stint as a senior marketing executive for Mansfield Plumbing Products.

“Richard has consistently demonstrated his ability to develop high-performing teams, drive focus on the customer and deliver outstanding results,” Masco CEO Keith Allman said in a prepared statement. “With his extensive experience in the plumbing industry and his proven leadership capabilities, I am confident that Richard will drive growth and continued innovation in this platform.”

Delta management will remain among O’Reagan’s responsibilities, but he will also oversee Masco subsidiaries Hansgrohe, BrassCraft, Masco Canada, Liberty Hardware, Mirolin and Brasstech.

Shah joined Delta in 2003 and has held roles in finance, corporate strategy and group operations.

“Over the years, Jai has contributed to the financial and strategic development of the company,” Allman said. “He is focused on the customer and, I believe, he will be instrumental in directing Delta into a new era of industry leadership.”

Plumbing products make up the largest of Masco’s five operating segments, with $800 million of revenue in the first quarter of 2013, the publicly traded company reported. It is also one of the fastest-growing as Masco has relied on Delta as a research-and-development machine to drive sales after the housing market crash in 2008 hurt overall business.

Delta has been operating in Indiana since 1959. More than 500 of its 1,700 employees work in the state, including at least 360 at its Carmel headquarters.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
