 The International Folk Arts Market has named an entrepreneur and professor as its next executive director after the resignation of its past CEO following the July market.

Stacey Edgar is the founder of Global Girlfriend, a fair trade company that sold woman-made artisan products from across the world, and co-founder of the nonprofit Trade + Impact, a trade association focused on advancing women-led social enterprises in Africa and the Middle East. After selling Global Girlfriend in 2019, Edgar has taught at the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business, with a focus on social responsibility and sustainability.

Edgar was selected for the IFAM position after a search that began in late summer.
