ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Reaction Retail announces the appointment of marketing and sales specialist Shannon Hebert as the Vice President of Retail-Ready Sales and Digital Strategy for Reaction Retail. This newly-created role comes as part of Reaction Retail’s expansion into the direct-to-consumer digital space and in connection with the company’s aggressive growth plans for its consumer side of the business.
Hebert will report to Reaction Retail CEO and Founder Janet Carter and will be tasked with driving sales for the company’s growing portfolio of consumer brands, which includes its award-winning line of AnySharp products, popular TRAVALO beauty accessories, and its recently launched online fashion accessories brand, YOUZEY.
Hebert brings with her 25 years of marketing, sales, and partnership experience in the live entertainment, media, and hospitality industries. She has held roles at companies that span start-ups, non-profits, and lifestyle brands, and has launched a number of global properties and entertainment experiences.
“Shannon’s knowledge of launching brands and engaging consumers in the digital arena is a natural complement to our proven success in the B2B area,” said Carter. “We have established Reaction Retail as a market leader in product development for major department and drug stores. Shannon’s experience is vital as we develop the best-in-class consumer and digital sides of our business. She will play a key role in driving this evolution.”
Hebert began her career at Feld Entertainment, where she ran marketing and sales for several touring shows, including Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Disney on Ice. After a track record of breaking attendance records in multiple cities and driving marketing for the world premiere of The Wizard of Oz on Ice, she was tapped to oversee all Feld shows on the West Coasts of the US and Canada. Subsequently, Hebert joined National Geographic, where she led a sales team that secured partnerships with prominent companies such as Lockheed Martin, Goldman Sachs, Rolex, Unilever, and The North Face. During her time there, she launched multiple National Geographic properties, including March of the Penguins, one of the Top 10 highest-grossing documentary films to date. Hebert later joined the startup Times Square Attractions Live to open National Geographic’s first-ever branded entertainment experience, National Geographic Encounter. As part of the launch team, she led the marketing and sales for this award-winning Times Square immersive attraction that drew audiences from around the world. Throughout her career, Hebert has served in a number of other leadership roles, including VP of Markets Institute at World Wildlife Fund and Chief Marketing Officer at Running Subway Productions.
“Reaction Retail has an impressive 10-year track record of developing custom product and marketing solutions for an array of high-profile retailers,” said Hebert. “I’m thrilled to work with them to build on this success and expand their strong line of brands to the consumer space.”
