CHATSWORTH, Calf. — Kristin Calzada has been appointed as Pipedream Products’ newly developed position of chief revenue officer.

Calzada will oversee Pipedream’s sales and marketing teams with a focus on global marketing programs that integrate both consumer preference and wholesale customer support.

“Kristin is an inspiring and proven leader with deep expertise of the complexities in sales and marketing. She has a strong understanding of our wide range of customers and will help drive the company to execute on our aggressive future growth plans,” said Matthew Matsudaira, CEO of Pipedream. “Over her long career in senior leadership positions, Kristin has demonstrated incredible aptitude for helping customers and growing businesses into large revenue streams and we are thrilled to expand this strong skillset to the next phase of growth for Pipedream.”

Calzada joins Pipedream with 25 years of combined experience in marketing, sales, product development, buying manufacturing, and licensing at companies including Warner Bros., Funrise Toy Corporation and May Merchandising Company.
