RF|Binder has added former Kaplow group VP Maggie Boezi as senior managing director and Marina Maher Communications/Hunter PR alum Amy Grosheider as managing director to its food, drinks and nutrition practice.
CEO Amy Binder noted the addition of Boezi and Grosheider expands the firm’s female leadership at and above the managing director level, which is currently made up of 56% women.
“I’ve always found it important to foster a leadership team that represents the voices of women,” she said in a statement. “We are a predominantly female industry, with predominantly male leadership, and we are looking to be part of changing that dynamic.”
During her more than six-year run at Kaplow, Boezi worked with Alouette Cheese/Savencia Fromage & Dairy, Franciacorta Consorzio, Unilever, CVS Pharmacy, Timex and Shiseido.
Grosheider, who has more than 10 years of experience, has worked for Post Cereals, Dole, Dean Foods, Coca-Cola, Bimbo Bakeries USA and Pernod Richard.
Atalanta Rafferty is executive managing director of the food, drinks and nutrition group.
