EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Dunnan Edell, president and chief executive officer of CCA Industries, has died. His father, David Edell, the company's founder and former CEO, 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.
