These are exciting times for Edible Arrangements and I am grateful to have a team filled with amazing talent. I am especially thrilled to see Amanda D.H. Allen be promoted from vice president of finance and accounting, to Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at Edible. Cultivating talent from within the organization helps to build a strong corporate culture.
Amanda is a results-driven professional who has taken on every new challenge and excelled. She has a passion and skill for creating value for franchisees, customers, and employees. These talents will serve us well in the future.
Amanda began her career in consumer & retail investment banking at UBS and included corporate finance and strategic planning leadership roles at PepsiCo, a Fortune 50 food and beverage company, as well as Starwood Hotels and Waterworks, a founder-led and private equity backed retailer.
Amanda holds a Master of Business Administration with Distinction from the Stern School of Business at New York University and a Bachelor of Science in Economics from Duke University, where she graduated with honors.
Allen succeeds Tony DiPippa, who will take on an expanded role overseeing the day-to-day operations of Edible and working closely with me to manage my portfolio of companies.
