GREENVILLE, S.C., April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Aunt Fannie's, Inc. (www.auntfannie.com), developer and manufacturer of non-toxic, easy-to-use, fast-acting fruit fly solution, FlyPunch!™, continues to attract key industry advisors across the business spectrum to support its rapid expansion and growth. The immediate success and increasing demand for Aunt Fannie's FlyPunch! by food and beverage service industries including wineries, breweries, hotels, night clubs, restaurants, and bars is indicative of the critical need to eliminate fruit flies without relying on the habitual use of dangerous chemicals and harmful poisons.
This recent increase in demand and sales of FlyPunch! across the country has led Aunt Fannie's CEO Mat Franken to appoint David Charne to the company's Board of Directors. Formerly Managing Director at Alvarez & Marsal in San Francisco, Mr. Charne specializes in providing financial guidance in complex environments, identifying and implementing operational improvements, and developing strategic initiatives for multi-channel retailers. He most recently served as interim COO and CFO at Talbots, a $1.2B women's apparel retailer. Mr. Charne received TMA's Large Company Turnaround of the Year Award in 2012 for his work with Harry & David, a $400 million vertically integrated food gifting retailer. Other notable clients include Eddie Bauer Holdings, lululemon athletica, Movie Gallery, Inc., and Pacific Gas & Electric Company.
"I am very pleased and excited to be involved in charting Aunt Fannie's future," says Mr. Charne. "The timing is perfect for FlyPunch! in target markets and customer response is highly positive."
"Given the unlimited need and multi-channel demand for FlyPunch!, I knew David would be an essential member of the Board," says Mr. Franken. "We are building our team with the best talent and expertise to take the company to the next level. I believe that when you align a group of forward thinking, successful individuals working together towards the same goals, great things are going to happen."
