Eli Menczer, Chief Commercial Officer, joined Innovative Labs in February of 2024. Prior to joining IL, he has had over 20 years of experience leading sales growth, opening new business channels and building high performing Sales, R&D and Marketing teams with leadership roles at dsm-firmenich, Flavor & Fragrance Specialties/Lucta Group, and Astor Chocolate.

He co-founded and sold two successful start-ups: one, a distributor of premium teas in the NYC metro area, and the other, a manufacturer and distributor of Kettle-Corn Products.

As CCO, Eli’s focus is on strengthening relationships with our partners and identifying growth opportunities by leveraging our capabilities into new markets. Providing unparalleled service to our customers and living up to and enhancing IL’s Value Proposition will always be the guiding principle.

Eli holds his BA in Business Management from Brooklyn College and his MBA in Finance from Hofstra University. 

Eli resides in NJ with his wife and 4 children. He would love to have some hobbies but, for now, shuttling his kids to their various recreational engagements and events and coaching his son’s little league team keep him more than occupied.
