Rock Candy Toys has announced the hire of its newest team member, Jackie Richerson.
Richerson will serve as Rock Candy’s Sales and Project Manager, and will work closely alongside Director of Sales, Tracy Leone. The role will tap Richerson’s extensive expertise in global sales and product training strategy to support Rock Candy’s retail partnerships throughout the East Coast.
“I am so thrilled to join the Rock Candy team!,” said Richerson. “The timing of this opportunity felt serendipitous in terms of the company’s forward momentum, as well as the next chapter of my career. I look forward to seeing where the next leg of this journey takes us.”
When she is not on the road, Richerson will manage a myriad of Rock Candy projects in addition to sales, including product development and manufacturing liaising.
Director of Sales Tracy Leone enthusiastically shared, “I admire the diverse wealth of talent that Jackie brings to the table, including operational versatility, a creative mind, and a proven history of sustaining positive relationships with retailers and distributors. It was hard to pin down just one title for her because she is so multi-talented.”
As the former U.S. Vice President of Operations and Sales for sexual wellness manufacturer Adrien Lastic, Richerson led the company’s product development operations, marketing strategy and domestic sales enterprises. Prior to joining Adrien Lastic in 2017, Richerson spent nearly a decade managing Hustler and AdamEve retail stores.
Leone concluded, “Jackie’s positive reputation speaks for itself. Others have always spoken very highly of her work ethic. Our entire team is grateful that she will be contributing to Rock Candy’s future growth in a meaningful manner.”
