Royal Palm Chocolates names Elben sales and marketing director


NAPLES, Fla. (March 26, 2013) – Philip and Stephanie Fincher, co-owners of Royal Palm Chocolates, have named Rita Elben as sales and marketing director for their corporate and wholesale divisions.

With more than 20 years experience in service-related industries, Elben worked at FreshAddress, Inc., a Massachusetts-based firm offering a niche service of email database solutions for Fortune 1000 and nonprofit clients. She has authored several white papers, has been a featured speaker at national technology conferences, and has offered her talents to both the nonprofit sector and to multi-national corporations.

Passionate about chocolate, Elben previously provided consulting services to The Chocolate Dipper, a specialty operation with four locations in the greater Boston area. She relocated permanently to Naples more than three years ago and joined Royal Palm Chocolates in March to continue her interest in the chocolate industry on a more local level.

Elben is responsible for developing new business relationships and working with clients to further Royal Palm Chocolates’ commitment to excellence and a positive customer experience.
Family-owned and operated, Royal Palm Chocolates was established in 2009 and is located off Old 41 at, 1084 Business Lane in Naples. (
