Crossmark Canada has made two executive appointments.

The Mississauga, Ont.-based sales and marketing services company named Kim Thompson its senior vice-president, client and business development, and hired Steve Noble as director of Crossmark's marketing agency, Marketing Werks.

Thompson, who was named one of Canadian Grocer's Star Women in Grocery in 2016, has led Crossmark Canada's client services team for the past four years. Thompson will continue to oversee client relationships and business development for Crossmark Canada, and will also oversee Marketing Werks in Canada.

"Thompson will be instrumental to developing headquarter and retail growth strategies for both existing and new clients, as well as overseeing a full range of marketing solutions by further integrating Marketing Werks opportunities," according to a press release announcing her expanded role.
