The man who headed the Dial unit of German conglomerate Henkel Corp. has resigned.

A company news release says president and chief executive Brad Casper is leaving Dial Corp. to pursue other interests and opportunities.

Casper joined the company soon after Henkel bought Scottsdale consumer-products maker Dial in 2004.

Casper was responsible for melding the cultures of the two companies into a cohesive unit.

He oversaw the construction of Henkel's headquarters and laboratory building in Scottsdale.

Casper is credited with engineering key acquisitions such as the $275 million purchase of Right Guard, Soft & Dri and Dry Idea brands from The Gillette Co. in 2006.
