BigMouth Inc. appointed Frank Carpenito to chief executive officer. Carpenito comes to BigMouth Inc. with more than 25 years of leadership success in the consumer product goods industry. The move, spearheaded by Executive Chairman Gary Kiedaisch and recapitalization partner CID Capital, positions BigMouth to sustain their strong growth.
Carpenito most recently served as CEO of Dancing Deer Baking Company, where he led the company to six consecutive years of growth. He also served as CEO for Fairfield Farm Kitchens and president of GB RetailExchange. Additionally, Carpenito has held key leadership roles at Procter & Gamble, Pepsi-Cola, and Berol Corporation.
BigMouth Inc. Founder Steve Wampold will serve as senior vice president of creative development and will also assume a role on the company’s board of directors. Gary Kiedaisch — a former chairman and CEO for Igloo Products, and CEO for The Coleman Company — will continue in his role as executive chairman.
“BigMouth Inc. is poised for an incredible future,” said Carpenito. “I am excited to bring my own blend of leadership and insight to a company on a path of sizable potential. This brand has basically created all-new product verticals, and with the company’s strong team, there is unlimited potential to innovate under Steve’s creative guidance. The best is yet to come.”
“Frank completes a big piece of the BigMouth puzzle,” added Kiedaisch. “His experience and accomplishments are a seamless fit, allowing Steve and his team to continue to develop product ahead of the pace of the industry.”
