QED International executive vice-president of worldwide sales and distribution Kimberly Fox has left the LA-based company in a move that both parties said was amicable.

Fox, a familiar face on the market circuit who attended the AFM last week with QED International, said she felt it was time for a change. Her contract is due to expire at the end of the year.

She joined the company at inception in early 2006 and previously served at Kathy Morgan International.

It is understood CEO and founder Bill Block and COO Paul Hanson are looking to assemble a new sales force following the recent departure of sales executive Tatyana Joffe.
