SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Starco Brands (OTCQB: STCB) today announced three appointments to its leadership team. Following the successful launch and expansion of Whipshots™, a cutting edge and unique alcohol-infused whipped cream, Starco Brands is adding additional operations, marketing, and sales expertise to support its accelerated multi-brand, multi-channel growth strategy. The new team additions join CEO Ross Sklar, Operations EVP Darin Brown, and Chief Marketing Officer David Dreyer.
"We are a modern-day invention factory, and our mission is clear: We only invent consumer products with behavior-changing technologies that spark excitement in the everyday. If it's not truly new, if it doesn't change behaviors, and if it doesn't spark excitement, then we won't pursue it," says Sklar. "These leaders exemplify best-in-class talent needed to create and commercialize leading-edge technologies and brands. This accelerates our incredible momentum and will allow us to realize projected milestones we've set for this rapidly growing public company."
Jeremiah Pfaff joins as Senior Vice President of Operations and, along with Brown, will manage supply chain, commercialization, manufacturing, and distribution. Brown and Pfaff also are senior executives at Sklar's manufacturing company, The Starco Group, a privately owned private label aerosol and liquid-fill manufacturer with a portfolio of innovative formulas and facilities spanning ten consumer product categories with limitless innovation potential.
Cathy Popick joins as Vice President of sales for Whipshots and, reporting to Dreyer, will spearhead Whipshots' continued breakthrough in new markets for instant-delivery, on-premise and off-premise retail. Popick comes to Starco Brands with considerable beverage alcohol sales leadership experience from Constellation Brands, DIAGEO, and Coors Brewing Company.
Patrick O'Neill joins as the company's Head of Creative and, along with Dreyer, will curate, direct and execute varying creative strategies within the Company. Patrick has created iconic work for some of the world's most iconic brands including: ABSOLUT, Pepsi, Gatorade, UNTUCKit, Visa, and the Grammys.
