She previously worked as vice president of marketing for Parisian Slim, a diet company founded by a former Nutrisystem Inc. executive. Between 2005 and 2009 she worked as creative director of Nutrisystem, another retailer of weight-loss plans that is No. 56 in the Top 500 Guide.

"Strengthening our strategic marketing efforts is critical to growing our brand during this important time for our business," McGrath says. "Jennifer has a proven track record with leading consumer brands, including a widely recognized weight loss company. Her significant marketing experience and expertise in a broad range of advertising methods will serve us well as we focus on growing our meal delivery business and delivering improved financial results in 2011.”
