Concord National has announced the appointment of Izabella Shaker as vice-president of its natural brokerage division, Indigo Natural Products Management.
Shaker, who steps into the role on May 17, has previous experience working at Indigo within both client and customer management. She has also racked up experience at Loblaw as a category director and, mostly recently, as vice-president of sales at Evive Nutrition.
In her new role, Shaker will be fully responsible for the day-to-day operations of the natural brokerage division. She takes on those responsibilities from general manager Krista Cunningham who departed the company on May 12.
"With her strong cross-functional background in retail, brokerage (client service & sales), and brand-side sales, Izabella brings with her a strong analytical mindset, broad industry perspective and ability to strategically think through business issues with a view to creating winning solutions for brands and retailers alike," said Tony Luongo, president of Concord National in a press release. "We are thrilled to be welcoming her back to the Concord National team."
