TORONTO, Jan. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eve & Co Incorporated (the “Company” or “Eve & Co”) (TSXV: EVE; OTCQB: EEVVF) is pleased to announce that Shari Mogk-Edwards has been appointed to its board of directors.
Ms. Mogk-Edwards’ previous career spans over 35 years with one of the largest single buyers of beverage alcohol in the world – the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (the “LCBO”). As the Vice President, Products, Sales and Merchandising, she led a high performance team of 100 category and inventory specialists, and directed sales of over $5B. She also developed and led VINTAGES, the fine wine department at the LCBO, to annual sales from $23M to over $500M. As a face of the LCBO, Shari managed her “Shari’s Picks” program, promoted responsible consumption, regularly represented the LCBO at trade, television and radio events, and was a key note speaker at countless events.
At her new consulting company, Ms. Mogk-Edwards is now focused on breaking down barriers and developing businesses. She shares her knowledge and experiences through her personal approach.
“We are very excited to have Shari on board. We expect her to be a very valuable asset in the direction of the EVE brand and as another female voice to authentically address and represent women and what they want from cannabis products. We believe that with Shari’s vast experience and focus on the female customer and in consumer packaged goods within a highly restrictive marketing and advertising regime, she will be a positive force in the awareness of EVE’s products and overall growth of EVE,”
said Melinda Rombouts, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eve & Co.
