The WBC is thrilled to have her onboard, and we look forward to having her alongside our team.”
Alongside Trice will be Varma in the Champion Relations department. Varma will assume responsibility for the WBC’s Advisory Council, strategic growth, high-level strategy, as well as building and growing the council itself.
