Scotts Miracle-Gro Promotes Ivan Smith to GC
The grass just got a little greener at the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, a lawn and garden care product manufacturer. The company announced that Ivan Smith will be promoted from assistant general counsel to executive vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary.
"Ivan is highly regarded by our operators for his extensive knowledge of the business," said Barry Sanders, president and chief operating officer in a company statement.
According to the statement, former GC Vincent Brockman “resigned to pursue other interests.” Brockman had been with the company since 2002.
The new GC joined Miracle-Gro in 2003 as associate general counsel and director of litigation, and became assistant general counsel in 2009. Before joining the Marysville, Ohio-based company, Smith was a litigator at Jones Day.
Smith received a B.A. from Miami University and his J.D. from The Ohio State University.
