The future is female at Pine Brook-based Rymax Marketing Services Inc. with the promotion of Eve Kolakowski to president.
Kolakowski has been with the company since 2000 and has held the title of chief operating officer since 2008. She is Rymax’s first female president.
While company Founder, Chairman and CEO Marc Farbstein plans to stay active in the company, Kolakowski will be responsible for running day-to-day operations and driving company strategy.
“Eve has been with Rymax since its infancy and has played a pivotal role in the success of our business,” Farbstein said in a statement. “I am more than confident that she is the right person to continue Rymax’s reign as the industry’s foremost incentive provider.”
Kolakowski played a part in the development of MaxSite, the company’s online redemption platform, and is responsible for having helped expand Rymax’s current vendor community plan.
Rymax boasts relationships with about 400 brands.
