Coolcore Expands Management Team to Propel Future Growth Opportunities
Last week, we announced we are expanding our management team to facilitate the growth of our product offerings for 2014 and beyond! Kevin McCarthy has been promoted to CEO and Donna L. Flood has been appointed to COO; appointments are effective immediately.
“Kevin’s entrepreneurial background and experience leading the expansion of young companies, coupled with Donna’s operational expertise, is a great asset to us as we enter our next phase of growth,” says Dennis Ackroyd, Coolcore founder and chief technology officer.
Since launching in January 2011, we have been focusing on expanding the application of our patented chemical-free materials beyond the athletic market into new categories. “The applications for our material innovation is virtually unlimited, so it is very exciting to see how we can improve people’s quality of life in all aspects of their day,” continued Ackroyd.
McCarthy, who has been with Coolcore since 2012, has more than 30 years of experience in brand development, sales and marketing. Prior to Coolcore, McCarthy served in senior level executive positions at KOAR, Power Balance, Perry Ellis, LA Gear, Starter, and other global consumer brands.
Flood was previously chief operations officer for Easton Bell Sports (EBS) and president of their Giro and Easton cycling brands. Prior to EBS, Flood spent 15 years at Reebok International Ltd. holding numerous positions, including global head of apparel product development, vice president of European operations, and head of apparel product marketing in Asia.
