Duck Donuts Franchising Company has announced two corporate promotions in an effort to strengthen leadership at the international brand. April Hoelscher, formerly marketing director, and Devon Mailey, formerly financial analyst, have both been promoted to vice president roles in their respective departments.
Hoelscher will oversee the national consumer marketing strategies and programs that drive brand growth, relevance and store traffic, inclusive of menu development, promotions, digital and social strategy, local store marketing, and the overall Duck Donuts brand experience.
Mailey, meanwhile, will lead Duck Donuts’ financial function and performance through planning, development, and organization.
