Kevin Freudenthal has been named president and CEO for Commonwealth - Altadis Inc. and region director for the Americas at Imperial Tobacco Group (ITG). He succeeds Graham Bolt, who retired from the company at the end of December.

Freudenthal will take overall responsibility for Commonwealth - Altadis from Eric Workman, senior vice president of marketing, at the end of the month.

Freudenthal has 26 years of industry experience and has made a career out of leadership and innovation in marketing tobacco products, the company said, working with large teams, crafting business strategy and improving profitability.

Before joining ITG, he was vice president for category management for Altria Group, and before that, spent two decades in executive positions at U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co., where he began his career as a territory representative.
