Mama’s Creations is bringing additional financial expertise to its team as it has appointed Lynn L. Blake to its Board of Directors. The veteran finance leader will also serve as Chair of the Board’s Audit Committee.
“I am privileged to join Mama’s Creations at such an exciting point in its evolution—with a growing suite of brands acting as a one-stop-shop deli solutions provider to grocers everywhere, I firmly believe the company is well positioned to execute upon its M&A strategy in the quarters and years to come,” said Blake. “I look forward to working closely with Adam [L. Michaels] and the Board as they continue their rapid pace of operational execution in this attractive, fast-growing category.”
Blake brings over three decades of financial leadership and public market experience to the Mama’s Creations Board. According to a release, this includes serving as Chief Financial Officer at multiple publicly traded companies, a private equity-owned portfolio company, and a venture-backed startup.
Currently, Blake serves in board roles at The trū Shrimp Companies, Elire, Volunteers of America, and the CFO Leadership Council. At The trū Shrimp Companies, she is Chair of the Audit Committee and serves on the Compensation Committee. Blake holds a BBA in Accounting and Finance from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, as well as an MBA from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. She is a CPA (inactive) in the State of Minnesota.
“Lynn brings a 30-year track record of delivering shareholder value, including successful CFO tenures at both private equity-backed and Nasdaq-listed public companies. She has also led multiple M&A and capital markets transactions, most notably leading the initial public offering of Tactile Systems Technologies (Tactile Medical) and its successful public market execution,” said Adam L. Michaels, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “I personally view her experience with public companies and capital markets as highly incremental to the skillset of our Board of Directors, making her an invaluable addition as independent Director and Chair of the Audit Committee. On behalf of the entire Mama’s Creations Board, I would like to welcome Lynn and look forward to her insights and contributions as we strive to build sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders.”
Congratulations to Lynn L. Blake on this new role!
