Hill’s Pet Nutrition has named Kostas Kontopanos president of its U.S. business. He succeeds Suzan Harrison, who was appointed president of commercial business analytics at Colgate-Palmolive, Hill’s parent company, in January.

The Topeka, Kan.-based company made the announcement today.

“Kostas’ extensive experience, both domestic and international, and his record of success in key operational and marketing roles will ensure that he brings outstanding leadership to the Hill’s U.S. business,” said Neil Thompson, president and CEO of Hill’s.

Kontopanos was previously vice president of marketing.

“Ours is a passionate, mission-driven organization and I am truly honored and excited to lead the Hill’s U.S. team,” Kontopanos said. “In my new role, I will reinforce our focus on innovation in Hill’s Prescription Diet and Hill’s Science Diet pet foods to offer new, precisely balanced nutritional products that will help pets around the world live longer, healthier, happier lives.”
