NEW YORK-Product development and marketing company StoreBound has appointed two industry veterans to its executive management team: Adam Cotumaccio as COO and Shaun Mackenzie as senior vice president/national sales manager.
Cotumaccio was most recently Global COO for Kinetic Worldwide, one of the world’s largest out-of-home media agencies. Cotumaccio’s career includes buying and planning positions for May Company and Macy’s, as well as founding The Leverage Group.
“Adam has an impressive track record of results with successful strategic and tactical leadership in retail, finance, marketing and manufacturing,” said Evan Dash, founder and CEO of StoreBound. “His entrepreneurial leadership style is a perfect fit for our business and will allow him to immediately impact our growth as well as our operational efficiency as we grow into a global entity.”
Housewares industry veteran MacKenzie has experience in very diverse business environments including turn-around, acquisition integrations and start-up. He most recently served as the U.S. president of Move Collective, makers of the bobble water bottle. Prior to that, he was vice president, sales, at Breville USA.
“I am extremely pleased to be welcoming Adam and Shaun to StoreBound’s management team,” said Dash. “They are joining the company during an exciting growth period with new products launching every month well into next year.”
Dash added, “We are currently in the midst of multiple global product launches and our design and engineering teams are preparing several new concepts for production, leveraging intellectual property we recently licensed. Building out our management team will enable us to support both the short and long-term growth plans of the company while we further establish our leadership position in product innovation across several categories including kitchen, utility and office.”
In addition, Rachel Hecht, currently Global Sales vice president sales, will take on the added responsibility of manager and oversee its distributor relationships in Europe, Asia and Australia.
