Talent moves up, even under lockdown. We might be working from anywhere and everywhere these days, but when it comes to new executive appointments, companies are looking within.
San Francisco-based Officium Labs, a decentralized customer experience startup, John Pompei as its new chief customer officer (CCO) and Scott McCabe as its chief human resource officer (CHRO). Pompei was promoted from within after joining Officium Labs from EA. McCabe is also an internal appointment having left Forte Labs for the company.
“It’s been a tremendous month for the company,” says Jonatharn Shroyer, CEO and Co-founder. “Officium Labs has just passed $9M in revenue, taken our first official step toward offering cryptocurrency, and filled two critical positions in our executive cabinet. We have more amazing things coming up right around the corner.”
In continuing with the trend of internal hires, Canon USA made several new VP and GM appointments this month and announced the lot this week. Shinya Fukuda is now the vice president and general manager of Corporate Planning. Yukinari Kaneta has been promoted to the same role in Corporate IT. Isao Kobayashi is the new VP and GM of the Imaging Technologies and Communications Group. Amy Newman takes the position for General Affairs and Procurement. Marie Abbondondolo has been promoted to vice president of Audit, Credit and Risk. Brian Mahar is now VP of the Imaging Technologies and Communications Group.
“It is my great privilege to announce these new appointments of these Canon employees,” says CEO and President Kazuto Ogawa. “These dedicated individuals have epitomized valuable leadership and expertise in helping Canon to cement and maintain its status as a leader in the digital imaging solutions industry. I appreciate their committed service and accomplishments and wish them all the best with their new roles.”
Breaking the trend of internal promotions is Montreal-based RGC. The wholesale coffee supplier has appointed David Kastle as their new Vice President of Business Development. Mr. Kastle joins the company after more than a decade with Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee.
“RGC is a company widely recognized for quality, honesty and reliability,” says Kastle. “Their continued investment in origin programs designed to elevate, empower and educate coffee growers and producer communities, their strong support of environmental stewardship and their expanding number of projects in concert with women-owned and women-managed producer groups, provide roasters with the satisfaction that their coffee is working towards a sustainable future.”
