“Anna and Fadhl are experts in their respective fields. As part of the executive team, they will be instrumental in shaping the corporate strategy and executing our continued growth and long-term success,” said Paul Vander Plaetse, founder and CEO at VuWall. “Their leadership styles, dedication and full alignment with the company values will be key in continuing to build and grow our team.”

Kozel joined VuWall as director of marketing in March 2019. Since then, she has transformed the company’s corporate image and considerably grown its visibility, which coincides with VuWall’s revenue growth in the last three years despite the challenges faced in 2020. She will continue to report to CEO, Vander Plaetse, and oversee VuWall’s marketing department globally, handling all marketing efforts including strategic partnerships, brand management and awareness.

“Since joining VuWall, I’ve had the privilege of working with an incredibly dedicated team, an exceptional line of products and loyal partners and customers,” said Kozel. “I am honored and motivated to take on this new role. Although we already have a strong position in the market, I look forward to strengthening and elevating the VuWall brand even further.”

Kozel has 20 years of experience in international business, marketing, systems engineering, strategic partnerships and alliances, sales and management, with a focus on marketing in Pro AV for the past 13 years. She holds a Bachelor of Computer Science from Concordia University.
