Iovate Fortifies Brand And Marketing Leadership By Adding Three New Brand General Managers
Oakville, ON & New York, NY, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Iovate Health Sciences International Inc. (www.iovate.com) and Iovate Health Sciences U.S.A. Inc. have announced the addition of new General Managers for the MuscleTech®, Six Star Pro Nutrition®, and Hydroxycut® brands. These new hires bring more than 50 years of experience and leadership at some of the world’s most well-known CPG companies including Unilever, M&M Mars, GSK, and Pernod Ricard.
Iovate has made these strategic moves on the back of strong sales across the company’s brand portfolio to start 2021. The General Managers will report into Iovate’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jarrod Jordan. The focus of the additional leaders is to facilitate continued growth, innovative practices, product expansion and marketing excellence — including strategic plans to venture beyond the “supplement” vertical where Iovate has been a leader and market disrupting innovator since its founding 25 years-ago.
“We are building a special organization at Iovate and we are very excited to add three experienced and innovative leaders who have cultivated brands used by millions of consumers on a daily basis.” Jordan said. “These General Managers will be the strategic backbone for our efforts to propel MuscleTech, Six Star Pro Nutrition and Hydroxycut to new heights at retail, in media, through the eyes of our buyers, and the hearts of our consumers across the world.”
Jennifer Bremner will lead the global ambitions for the MuscleTech® brand’s (www.muscletech.com) continued growth, as well as the worldwide partnership with Global Brand Ambassador, Henry Cavill. Her background includes 18 years at Unilever in both global and US leadership roles on brands such as Suave® and Dove®. She also led the launch of Dove Men+Care® globally.
A graduate of Villanova University and Cornell’s S.C. Johnson School of Management, Bremner will be based in the New York City area.
