CHICAGO, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Label Insight, the leading provider of data solutions that power transparency between CPG brands, retailers and consumers, announces three key additions to its Sales, Operations, and Customer Care teams to support the company's rapid expansion.
Earlier this year, the company embraced its status as an emerging market leader for the SmartLabel transparency initiative by bolstering its C-Suite. The most recent additions to Label Insight's executive team reflect the company's continued focus on scaling up as the CPG industry rallies around a unified transparency initiative -- SmartLabel.
Label Insight's newest hires bring a wealth of experience and firsthand insights to the company. Mike Fridholm, who has joined the company as SVP of Sales, has nearly 30 years of experience in the consumer packaged goods industry, spanning roles at Quaker Oats, Catalina Marketing, Nielsen and WPP. He is an expert in utilizing data to inform sales strategies and helping companies improve innovation.
Deepak Talwar, Label Insight's new VP of Operations, is adept at managing a dynamic, multicultural workforce. Talwar has more than 16 years of success in the areas of client management, software development and pre-sales. He has also conducted large enterprise projects with industry leaders and, most recently, managed development, implementation and production support for Amdoc's largest customer, AT&T.
Rounding out the executive team is new VP of Customer Success, Jesse Frankel. Previously an Executive Director of Digital Solutions at Catalina, Frankel was responsible for driving adoption and systems integration efforts for digital promotions programs and implementing mobile shopping solutions for major retailers, brands and industry partners. His background in helping companies develop sales longevity by anticipating consumer needs to achieve business outcomes will be an asset for Label Insight.
"This new set of talent is a welcome addition to the Label Insight team at a time when the company is rapidly gaining momentum," said Paul Schaut, CEO. "As key players on the executive team, Fridholm, Talwar and Frankel will play active roles in further scaling Label Insight upward and forward as an innovative leader in the product transparency movement."
This announcement follows two other key hires this year: Paul Schaut's appointment to CEO, and Patrick Moorhead's hire as CMO.
