In his new role, Rowan will work with the leadership team of the Westlake Village company that makes temperature-controlled coffee mugs to further expand Ember’s presence in Asia and Europe as well as continue to grow the brand’s U.S. sales and distribution channels.

Clay Alexander, founder and group chief executive of Ember, said it was a privilege to welcome an experienced executive such as Rowan to the company.

“His deep category knowledge in scaling premium consumer electronic brands and thoughtful leadership will be an invaluable resource and complement our leadership team as we grow our consumer division,” Alexander said in a statement.

“I’m honored to be joining such a world-class organization as Ember,” Rowan said in a statement. “The combination of their cutting-edge technology, premium brand, unparalleled design and customer-first approach have all the makings for a monumental success story. I’m privileged to be given the opportunity to be a part of that story and grow the consumer division worldwide.”
