In This New Role, Schlesinger Will Work to Increase Edible’s Sales and More
Heather Schlesinger has been named vice president of marketing for Edible Brands, the parent company of Edible, an industry-leading e-commerce provider and a franchisor of stores that offer snacks, fruit, dipped treats and fruit arrangements. She will work closely with Edible’s leadership team to drive sales and enhance customer perception of the brand. Before joining Edible’s leadership team, she was chief marketing officer for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
In a statement, Schlesinger said, “I am extremely excited to join a timeless brand that lists innovation at the forefront of its brand initiatives. As an Atlanta native, I have witnessed the brand’s growth from the ground up, as they have cemented their place in the gifts and treats industry for many years now.”
Schlesinger will use her two decades of experience to continue Edible’s success and will work to “help strengthen its ever-evolving product line.”
“We’re extremely grateful to have such a resourceful leader in the industry like Heather joining our team. With countless years of experience, she will be an undeniable asset to the brand by overseeing strategies that will continue to drive profitable growth for Edible,” said Cheikh Mboup, Edible Brands president and COO.
Mboup isn’t in doubt of Schlesinger’s ability to uphold the franchise’s values, and her addition to the leadership team “comes at an integral time as our brand continues to expand.”
