GREENVILLE, S.C., Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Aunt Fannie's, Inc. (www.auntfannie.com), creator of an all-natural, non-toxic, powerful, fast-acting fruit fly solution called FlyPunch!™, continues its rapid expansion with the appointment of Adam Wilczeweski, formerly Chief of Staff at the U.S. International Trade Administration (ITA), as Executive Vice President. Aunt Fannie's burgeoning growth is reflective of the convergence of the soaring need for a solution to the global issue of fruit flies in food manufacturers, restaurants, wineries, homes and beyond, and the demand for safer, natural, non-toxic products. In fact, Florida's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services emphasizes that "Fruit flies are one of the most potentially destructive pests in the world." Aunt Fannie's meets this critical need with a safe, non-toxic, easy-to-use, university-researched solution that is being adopted by businesses, food establishments, and homes nationwide.
To meet this global need with Aunt Fannie's lab-tested natural, non-toxic products, Mr. Wilczewski initially joined the company as an enthusiastic backer through his own venture firm Busch Global Ventures (BGV), having graduated alongside the company's founder Mat Franken from the University of Florida and both having held leadership positions in Phi Delta Theta. With the company's continued success, Wilczewski is thrilled to be joining the team full-time to leverage his expertise and international experience to help further build upon this growth domestically and globally.
"Adam comes to us with years of global leadership experience spanning prestigious roles in government, corporate, entreprenueral, international, legal and fundraising sectors," says Mat Franken, Founder & CEO. "It is truly an honor to have Adam as such an important part of these next phases of our growth. The demand for our products has been phenomenal across multiple industries ranging from breweries and wineries to restaurants, homes, commercial and agricultural applications. Adam's deep experience across multiple sectors will enable us to capitalize on these global demands for our offerings and enable us to continue to scale, empowering individuals and corporations to handle fruit flies safely, effectively and naturally."
Prior to founding Busch Global Ventures, Mr. Wilczewski led the efforts at the International Trade Administration under the U.S. Department of Commerce to strengthen the domestic and international competitiveness of U.S. industry through multi-lateral trade and investment activities. In addition to business affairs, Mr. Wilczewski has served in leadership roles in four presidential campaigns.
"When I found out Mat had started his own company that provides an extremely effective, natural solution to such a glaring global problem, I had to get involved," explains Adam Wilczewski. "Flypunch! is potently effective and the only singularly safe product amongst its peers, fitting the growing consumer and industrial demand for non-toxic, all-natural solutions. Furthermore, working with an old friend makes building a high-growth business also a lot of fun."
