CandyRific LLC, a candy and novelty distributor, has promoted Frank Puglia.
After previously serving as the company’s creative director for nine years, and working on CandyRific’s products for about 18 years, Puglia has now been appointed as CandyRific’s executive vice president of product development.
Puglia will now oversee product development for Hilco, since CandyRific’s acquisition of the brand in 2014, in addition to four designers for the company.
“It’s been a wonderful experience to grow in my professional career as a designer and to grow with CandyRific as the company has expanded,” Puglia says. “My goal is to keep developing innovative and fun products and pushing the limits of what we can accomplish.”
