CHANDLER, Ariz., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Custom jewelry company Origami Owl names two new top executives, looking to continue its remarkable growth.
Deb Bursley, who joined the company in early 2013 as Senior Vice President of Marketing, directed a series of successful initiatives, including restructuring the Marketing, Communications and Creative Departments, and filling key leadership positions. Bursley's immediate and measurable impact led to her advancement to Chief Marketing Officer. Bursley has more than 20 years of experience in leadership level positions in marketing and communications, leveraging expertise she's honed during stints at some of the most recognizable names in the direct sell industry, including Amway Global, The Longaberger Company, SUZANNE and FurChange America (a subsidiary of the direct selling giant, Tiens).
Origami Owl has also appointed Tricia Chiodo as Chief Financial Officer. Chiodo brings with her more than 20 years of experience, most recently serving as Chief Financial Officer at RSC Equipment Rental, where she led an IPO and secured more than $1 billion in Asset Based Lending and High Yield Debt. Her public and private sector experience, combined with her knowledge of operational efficiency, will ensure Origami Owl maintains smart, strategic expansion.
"Both Deb and Tricia have proven invaluable through this amazing year. They've positioned us well, and will be essential to our continued success," says Robin Crossman, CEO of Origami Owl.
