Brown Joins Fiesta Tableware as VP, Sales

NEWELL, W. Va. – The Fiesta Tableware Co. recently welcomed Dana Brown as the company’s new vice president, sales.

Brown is responsible for sales team management, driving sales strategies, focused channel management, delivering financial results, and being a valuable contributor to product development and marketing.

“I have worked closely with Fiesta throughout my career and have always had a passion for the brand,” says Brown. “I feel a great responsibility in carrying on the legacy and evolution of such an icon in the tabletop industry, especially as an American-made brand. I look forward to collaborating with our retail partners and learning about the Fiesta enthusiasts so we can continue to excite them about our new introductions.”

Brown, a former Macy’s and Bed Bath and Beyond executive, brings more than 20 years of tabletop and industry experience to the position. She’s an expert in omni channel buying, product development, design, and sourcing. Brown also brings consulting experience from With Joy.

Brown replaces Rich Brinkman, who plans to retire in the spring. He joined the company in 2006.

“As someone who has been on the retail side of the industry, Dana brings a fresh perspective to our business,” says Liz McIlvain, president of Fiesta. “When we were looking for someone to fill this position, there was no question Dana would be a good fit. Not only are her skills and experience impressive, but as a retailer she always understood the power of our brand.”
