Tastemakers added Lee Schneider and Charles Berzon to its global operations team.
Schneider will serve as COO of Tastemakers, overseeing operations and financial matters and acting as the point of contact for the company’s Hong Kong office. Schneider previously served as the president of Commonwealth for more than 20 years.
Berzon joins the company’s Arcade1Up team as general manager of the Asia headquarters. Berzon has more than 30 years of experience, working with large brands and running his own manufacturing company.
Both Berzon and Schneider will report to Tastemakers CEO Scott Bachrach.
Tastemakers will also promote Albert Rapella to senior director of global compliance. Before joining Tastemakers, Rapella spent more than seven years at Toys “R” Us as director of quality for its private label product line.
“It is a great feeling to expand our business both domestically and globally,” says Bachrach. “As our business continues to grow, thrive, and dominate new markets, it is necessary to add and appoint experienced individuals to ensure our rapid growth’s success.”
