Help Us Welcome Our New VP of Marketing: Eva Woo

We're on a hiring spree [ see our career page on our website ], and in case you haven't heard, we just added a new member to the executive team: Vice President of Marketing Eva Woo.

Eva comes to us with a really interesting background — she's helped some well-known start-up companies and taken on challenging marketing projects for massive corporations like Google — and we're very excited about her upbeat attitude.

Eva's marks the second big hire in the past month. Just weeks ago, we announced the hire of Aldo DeAmicis as our new Vice President of Manufacturing.

Eva said she's impressed with BWC's history — 62 years of manufacturing in an area that has lost so many manufacturers, even some owned by major international corporations. That long-standing history proved to her that we're doing something right, she said.

"The fact that for 62 years they have managed to keep a local manufacturing plant running in Contra Costa County told me that they are doing something right," she said in a press release we sent out today. "Bishop-Wisecarver's manufacturing facility in Pittsburg, CA, has outlasted other local manufacturing facilities owned by name brands such as Levi Strauss, Mothers Cookies, NUMMI and, most recently, Solyndra."

She's got a great point there! Glad to see our hard work, our imagination and willingness to take on new challenges is attracting the attention of great professional like Eva. Can't wait to see what grand things we can accomplish with the newest addition to our leadership team! [ Read the Press Release ]
