“I hope to help Spenco expand in Canada by identifying new areas of growth for each of the product categories,” said Nowak. “You could definitely say I am a shoe enthusiast, so joining the Spenco team is a dream come true.”
“With her experience developing strong pipelines and creating brand awareness for medical products, Agnes is perfect for this position,” said Rob Gumieniak, Spenco Canada’s director of business development. “The opportunities for the Spenco brand in the Canadian market are immense. She will help ensure that Canadians have greater access to the best insoles, footwear and first aid products on the market.”
