“Since joining Séura in 2020, Rob has strengthened our business, establishing new routes to market and introducing winning product innovations. We’re confident that Rob will bring the same proven track record of success to running our entire company,” said Gretchen Gilbertson. “As we set our strategy for continued growth, this organizational change will maximize our company’s capability-building and results. Rob has excellent business acumen and leadership skills to accelerate Séura’s growth.”
“Our goal is to rapidly scale by delivering more value to our partners and consumers, with plans to more than double our company’s size in the next 3 to 5 years,” said Emberley. “I am incredibly energized and honored to assume this new position and look forward to partnering with our customers to profitably lead industry growth.”
