Adams joins WWP during a period of growth, including the 2019 acquisition of Cosmetic Design Group, whose offerings include turnkey formulation, development and design, sourcing, assembly, displays, regulatory and warehousing services. WWP also acquired cosmetics packaging provider Design Quest. The growth-centric moves followed the opening of WWP’s first wholly owned manufacturing facility in China – a 100,000-square-foot plant in Suzhou.
According to Josh Kirschbaum, CEO of WWP, Adams brings “a proven track record for developing profit-driven strategies, improving sourcing models, driving supply chain efficiencies and generating significant gains in financial performance.” Most recently, she served as EVP COO & CFO for NYDJ Apparel, LLC, a provider of premium women’s denim clothing. Prior to that, she spent nearly five years as CFO for fashion and apparel company The Collected Group; before that, she served as CFO for select brands of Denver-based VF Corporation, a multi-brand and global fashion and apparel company.
"We couldn't be happier to welcome Jennifer to our rapidly growing team. As WWP expands both its offerings portfolio and its market share, keen financial oversight will help guide our growth strategies and parameters,” said Kirschbaum. “I am confident that Jennifer’s impressive experience and proven abilities will undoubtedly play a major role in helping lead the company into its next growth and expansion phase.”
WWP is headquartered in New Jersey; Adams will be located in the CDG Culver City, CA office. With sales offices in California and Texas, the company says it services customers from coast to coast, and that its team has grown to more than 2,000 employees worldwide.
