"When I first met with Susan, I was amazed at her entrepreneurial mindset, as well as how innovative she truly is." Richard Carieri, the Former CEO and Founder of Lifetech Resources, said of McCarthy, "She is not afraid to think out of the box, and that is why I think she is able to bring the best out of people, which is a rare talent to have. I knew that she was the one to pass the torch off to."
McCarthy has worked with contract manufacturers and as an independent brand consultant. She is well versed in concept development, product development, marketing, strategic planning, brand development, brand management and sales management.
"We have to be forward-thinking—innovative in not only our formulas, but in our manufacturing and business practices," McCarthy noted. "Where do we want to be in 5, 10, 15 years from now and how will we prepare for these new opportunities? Thoughts like these allow us to put the customer first, helping to ensure their success."
With a progressive mindset, McCarthy is poised to bring many positive changes to Lifetech Resources. Having over 30 years of experience in the personal care industry, she will bring a level of expertise and leadership rarely seen.
"There are many things that Susan has in store for us," says Twee Le-Roth, Vice President of Sales and Business Development.
