“Over their years of tenure at Dr. Bronner’s, and during the past 6 months especially, Marc De Rosa and Gina Coccari have proven that they are the leaders we need to grow our sales and take our company to the next level. The strategic vision and coordination we have had under their leadership is the best it has ever been,” said Michael Bronner, in a statement.
In their new roles, De Rosa and Coccari will join Dr. Bronner’s executive council, which is comprised of representatives of the company’s senior leadership and advises on the company’s decisions, operations, growth, and development, and ensures they reflect the integrity of Dr. Bronner’s All-One! mission and values.
