Before joining Foap, Sussman worked at Daily Mail. She has also worked at renowned companies including Elite Daily, New York Media, Allrecipes, IAC, and Conde Nast.
“To capitalize on the early success of Foap’s efforts in Europe and to support the recent public launch of Foap Video Missions, we have assembled the foundation of our sales and marketing team, and set our sights on successfully entering and gaining market share in the vibrant U.S. market,” said Adrian Dubler, Chief Executive Officer of Foap. “Stacie brings to bear a well-deserved reputation of successfully working with startups and taking them to the next level. Responsible for establishing strategy, we will leverage her expertise to strengthen our relationships and further expand our footprint in the U.S.”
Before being appointed as Director of Partnerships for Foap, Walsh was the Area Sales Manager for Everything But The House (EBTH). She also worked at GrubHub Seamless, Altria Group, Inc., and Kraft Foods, Inc.
“Having worked with influencers across some of the largest social media platforms, Foap is at the forefront and one of the very few companies to understand that consumers, especially millennials, connect with and engage more actively with authentic content,” said Sussman. “I am impressed by the effectiveness of Foap’s platform, specifically its ability to provide brands and digital marketers with cost-effective access to its global community of photographers and videographers. Foap’s unique approach ensures that brands and marketers truly connect with their target audience, encourage engagement and achieve a high ROI.”
