Geiger Promotes Two Executives
Geiger, a top 10 industry distributor, has promoted Geiger UK managing director Vicky Kinasz to its executive team and Elizabeth Fagan to vice president of Crestline.
“Both Vicky Kinasz and Elizabeth Fagen have the leadership skills and management talent to support our company culture and growth trajectory," said Geiger president and CEO Jo-an Lantz. "It will be exciting to work alongside them as they lead their respective business units into the future.”
As an executive team member, Kinasz will work on strategic planning, policy, and overall future business growth and direction for Geiger and all business units. She will keep her role as managing director of Geiger UK.
Prior to joining Geiger UK in May 2020, Kinasz was managing director of the distributor agency Supremia, which included overseeing key accounts, such as global beauty products manufacturer Coty. She has 25 years of experience in the promotions and merchandising industry. Her first industry job involved the manufacturing and licensing of toys. Kinasz lives in Holmer Green, Buckinghamshire, UK, with her husband Jan and son James. In her spare time, she's an avid runner and enjoys coaching beginners in "Couch to 5k," to pass on her love of running.
Fagan, the new vice president of Crestline, will oversee all aspects of the Crestline business unit including sales, marketing, operations, customer service, customer acquisition, e-commerce, financial performance and customer satisfaction.
Before she joined Crestline in 2019 as director of sales and marketing, Fagan held positions as the director of marketing for the family-owned business Planet Dog, strategic consultant in Beijing for Mercedes Benz, and group strategy director at the VIA Agency—where she managed accounts including Disney, Walmart, and Unilever. Elizabeth lives in Biddeford, Maine, with her daughter Cecilia; and is a board member for Heart of Biddeford, a nonprofit dedicated to the revitalization and sustainability of downtown Biddeford.
