In her expanded role, Monck will also contribute to a wide range of company and executive initiatives.  Monck will continue to be based in New York, and will report to GM and CMO Adam Lowenberg.

“Catie has been a key part of our success, and we are thrilled to promote her to this important position,” said Lowenberg of the promotion.
