EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Dunnan Edell, president and chief executive officer of CCA Industries, has passed away suddenly. His father, David Edell, former CEO and founder of the company, has agreed to resume the CEO’s role. David Edell had retired at the end of 2011.
The company’s board of directors has appointed Stephen Heit to the position of president, in addition to his role as chief financial officer. Heit previously served as president of AM Cosmetics.
In addition, Drew Edell has been appointed a director until the next annual shareholders’ meeting.
"I am very grateful that David Edell has agreed to accept the position of chief executive officer," said Stanley Kreitman, chairman of the board. "This is a terrible time for David and his family, and I think it is admirable that, despite his overwhelming grief over the sudden loss of his son, he has agreed to help the company out, always keeping in mind the best interests of the shareholders. We are also grateful that Stephen Heit has accepted the position of president. Steve’s previous experience will provide important continuity with our customers and employees."
