Mangat, meanwhile, was most recently VP, relationship management, at a consulting firm covering U.S. and Canadian pension plans. With more than 20 years experience in finance, she has also worked in capital markets as a sell-side equity analyst.

"After commercializing and beta testing the Nexe coffee pod, we are now keenly focused on growing sales. The appointment of Chris Murray, a seasoned CPG salesperson with a proven track record will ensure that we are positioned to be the market leader in the single-serve industry. The appointment of Kam Mangat will enhance our focus on capital markets and corporate strategy to help build internal operations to support our growth," said Ash Guglani, president of Nexe Innovations. "We expect that the new appointments will significantly strengthen our team as we focus on executing on our strategy.”
