Kaival Brands Innovations Group, parent to Bidi Vapor, today announced the promotion of Eric Mosser, its current president and chief operating officer, to the position of CEO. Mosser brings over a decade of senior leadership experience, including since 2020 at Kaival Brands. Mosser will retain the position of president, according to a press release.

The company also also appointed Thomas J. Metzler as the company’s chief financial officer (CFO), treasurer and secretary, effective as of August 1, 2023, replacing Mark Thoenes, who has served as Interim CFO since 2021.

Metzler brings over 20 years of finance and operational experience in the vaping and consumer products sector, previously serving as managing director of a division of Turning Point Brands.

At Turning Point Brands, Metzler led a team to transform the process of financial management efficiencies, which improved cost controls, managed inventory turn, developed strategic product promotions to accelerate product distribution, and built strategic alliances with suppliers.

“We are very excited to have Tom join our senior management team and believe his hiring represents a key building block for the future of Kaival Brands, said Mosser. “Tom brings to us a wealth of experience and knowledge across all of the key elements of the CFO’s office including treasury, finance, and accounting.

“He also has tremendous knowledge of business operations in our industry and will therefore greatly contribute to the crafting and implementation of our growth plans. On behalf of our board of directors, we welcome Tom and give thanks to Mark Thoenes for his excellent work as our interim CFO the past few years.”
