Corporate Innovation Contacts - Pt1

Ivonne Kinser, Sharon Byers, and Jan DeLyser are the heads of the marketing departments for Avocados From Mexico, the American Cancer Society, and the California Avocado Commission, respectively. The contact details for all executives mentioned below, as well as their LinkedIn profiles, have been provided in columns A-J of rows 2-8 of the attached spreadsheet.

I. Avocados From Mexico

II. Cotton Incoporated

  • Kimberly Kitchings serves as the "Senior VP of Consumer Marketing."
  • Mark Messura serves as the "Senior VP of Global Supply Chain Marketing."

III. FDA

  • Cory Darden Milam is the "Director, Office of Innovation."

  • Elaine Otte is the "Manager of National Channel Marketing & Innovation"

RESEARCH STRATEGY

We have provided the contact details for the most senior individuals in the marketing departments for organizations that do not have the 'VP of Marketing' position. The 'person in charge of innovation' has been defined as the most senior executive with the term 'innovation' in his/her job title or description. Additionally, the research team provided the contacts for the two senior-most marketing executives for the companies whose head of innovation could not be explicitly identified.

Notably, the CDC does not have a marketing department (since it is a noncommercial government entity); instead, the research team has provided the contact for the "Associate Director for Communication' who is in charge of both internal and external communication strategies.

Additionally, the research team leveraged email finder resources including Rocket Reach and Hunter to determine the email addresses for the executives since they do not provide their contact information on any of their social, web, or professional profiles.
