Late last week, Retailing Today reported the GNC CFO Mike Nuzzo had resigned his position to accept a role at a private equity-funded consumer products company. Today, 4moms, a special-purpose robotics company that makes high tech baby gear, confirmed that it has appointed Nuzzo as chief administrative officer and EVP of business development.
"4moms is positioned for continued dramatic growth as we develop new products, enter new categories and expand our relationships with retailers," said Rob Daley, CEO of 4moms. "Mike is a proven executive and we're excited to have him join our team."
Prior to GNC, Nuzzo was at Abercrombie & Fitch, where for nine years he held leading roles in the finance department. He was a key executive for the Abercrombie & Fitch store organization and various corporate business units of the company. Nuzzo received his MBA degree in finance and accounting from the University of Chicago and a bachelor's degree in economics from Kenyon College.
"I have been following 4moms' trajectory for several years," said Nuzzo. "Not only does the company boast a passionate and devoted customer base, but every department, from engineering to design to sales, is focused on delivering the most advanced products to the market. I'm thrilled to join such a dedicated team of visionaries."
4moms recently acquired larger office space in Pittsburgh, and plans to add nearly 50 new jobs in 2014.
The company’s products, which include the mamaRoo infant seat, origami power-folding stroller, rockaRoo infant swing and breeze playard, are sold in more than 2,000 retail stores in more than 52 countries, including buybuy Baby, Babies "R" Us, Target, Nordstrom and shop4moms.com.
