AUSTIN, TEXAS (August 30, 2022) – Global home furnishings leader, Four Hands announces today that Rosanna Godden, formerly of Super Coffee, Amazon, and Whole Foods Market, has been named the company’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Bringing extensive financial and operational experience, Godden joins Four Hands on the heels of an exceptionally successful year for the company, reaching nearly $500 million in sales in 2021 and the recently announced distribution headquarters expansion to Buda, Texas.
Godden is taking the reins of the CFO role that has been held by Curt Welch, who is gearing up for retirement after 18 years of service at Four Hands.
“Rosanna’s proven reputation and success in delivering meaningful results across multi-national businesses will continue to drive Four Hands forward in an ever-changing and challenging market,” said Matthew Briggs, Four Hands President and CEO. “At the same time, we express our immense gratitude for Curt Welch and his nearly two decades of guiding growth. With this transition, we look forward to building on our strong foundation of success with a new chapter of leadership and opportunities for the company.”
Rosanna Godden’s career spans more than 20 years, during which she led financial and operational growth in executive roles with large enterprise organizations, including Amazon, Whole Foods Market, Starbucks, and most recently Super Coffee. Noteworthy successes include leading the $13.7 billion Whole Foods Market acquisition – disrupting an entire industry as a result – and raising $106 million in Series C funding for Super Coffee, a health-focused beverage startup.
As Chief Financial Officer, Godden will join the Four Hands executive team and focus her efforts on further strengthening the company’s robust financial position, and work with the broader management team to position the company to continue to capitalize on opportunities to grow and expand the Four Hands brand.
“I am so excited to join Four Hands and be a part of a business and team with such long-standing values and potential,” said Rosanna Godden, Chief Financial Officer. “This is an amazing opportunity allowing me to do what I do best – bring in a fresh perspective and my diverse skill set to not only create but effectively execute financial and operational strategy.”
