She earned an MBA, graduating with distinction, from both the Columbia Business School and the London Business School, and holds a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania.
“Alicia’s significant expertise in both investment management and human resources will be extremely beneficial to the company, and highly complementary to the backgrounds of the other board directors,” said Brent Willis, chief executive of New Age. “Her depth of media experience will be a tremendous asset to our board as we work to improve our media approach, strengthen our brand and improve our story for investors to better understand the power and potential of the company. We are thrilled for her to join us in our mission to inspire and educate the planet to ‘Live Healthy.’”
Syrett said, “I’m excited to join the incredible team at New Age and bring significant value to the company, helping support them in their purpose, and drive further value for New Age’s shareholders as we continue to communicate the company’s potential and execute on our initiatives. New Age’s management has developed a powerful global operation and an outstanding portfolio of healthy products over the last three years and I look forward to helping further position the company for transformative growth and significant value creation in the near and long term.”
Syrett will serve on the audit and compensation committees of the board.
