Under the separation agreement, Arcuri will receive a $625,000 severance payment, and a pro-rated cash bonus payable at the same time bonuses are paid to active employees. Arcuri joined Newell in December 2014 at global president of the home solutions business. Prior to that, he had spent 28 years at Procter & Gamble Co. .
