Jennifer Edgar - Chief Executive Officer
In 1991 Jennifer Edgar joined the Eucalan family, literally when she married Mary Ellen's youngest son, Ken. Immediately Jennifer began working in the office as an administrative assistant. Through learning the business from the ground up, Jennifer got to know the customers and their businesses, along with the Eucalan product which was still in its infancy.
Over the years Jennifer helped with and eventually guided the company through a few transformations. The growth has been organic through word-of-mouth and based on a solid reputation of delivering outstanding customer service and a superior product. Being a family business means just that family first, and Jennifer has been able to raise her family while working at first part-time or from her home office, but she has been the Managing Director since 2001.
As such, she headed a major re-branding in 2007 which not only included expanding the line scents, along with logo and package re-design introducing a new fresh, contemporary brand. Tradeshows also figure prominently which Jennifer attends anywhere from 4 to 6 per year in both the Yarn and Lingerie markets. This is the time she enjoys most when she can interact personally with wholesale customers and gain their valuable feedback. She is responsible for developing allegiances with designers, along with key trade and media partners.
Jennifer is looking forward to celebrating the company's 30th anniversary. As someone who has been involved with the brand since almost the inception, she is well poised to lead the company into the future. Jennifer is an integral part of the business, with her discerning style and impeccable taste resonating through the brand.
Lisa Ward - Office Manager
Lisa has worked for the Edgar family for 19 years and moved over to Eucalan in the fall of 2012. Lisa enjoys the interactions with the retail customers we have. Many of the anecdotes with respect to using the product come through Lisa, who also uses the product on her pets (of which she has a dogs, cats and horses). She finds it gentle on their skin and makes their fur wonderfully soft. The eucalyptus scent is great in repelling fleas and keeping the flies away from the horses. Yes she even washes her horse with Eucalan and its gentle enough to wash her equestrian winter blanket and store it away for the summer.
