“Karen brings a wealth of experience to pediped,” says COO Rudy Glocker. “She will be pivotal in continuing to grow the sales, brand recognition and market share of our product.”

The Henderson, NV-based footwear company manufactures more than 120 designs for boys and girls with two lines: Originals, soft-soled shoes for newborns to age 2+ and Flex, rubber-soled shoes for children 1-6 years.

Angela and Brian Edgeworth launched pediped in 2004 by creating the perfect soft-soled shoe for their first daughter. Now the award winning company is one of the fastest-growing children’s footwear brands in the U.S., sold in over 2500 stores and in 40 countries.

Prior to joining pediped, Karen spent nearly 15 years honing her retail and sales skills across several industries, most recently with IBM and NCR.  With an MBA from Stanford and a BA from Cornell University, Karen is also bringing book-smart business sense to the children’s wear industry.

We wish Karen well on her journey with pediped!
