Marc Fisher Footwear Joins in Support of Working Parents with MilkMate’s Workplace Breast Pumping Solution

NEW YORK, NY, JUNE 1, 2024 – MilkMate officially launched with its newest retail and fashion partner, Marc Fisher Footwear. The partnership with Marc Fisher Footwear marks MilkMate’s latest collaboration with leading retail and fashion companies who are looking to support their working parent communities in forward-thinking ways.

More than ever, family benefits matter. 60% of employees have left or have considered leaving their organization due to inadequate family benefits and support. Companies looking to recruit and retain top talent need to be ahead of the curve when it comes to offering best-in-class benefits. MilkMate’s FDA-cleared breast pumping solution is the first-of-its-kind system that includes everything that’s needed to pump at work so that working parents can overcome the pumping at work problem, one of the greatest barriers surrounding return to work post maternity leave.

Marc Fisher Footwear, one of the largest privately held multi-brand footwear companies in America with a portfolio that includes many of the most recognizable and iconic American brands, installed MilkMate’s workplace breast pumping solution within its existing lactation rooms at its Greenwich, Connecticut headquarters as well as its New York City showroom location.  “We are thrilled to support our working mothers with a clean, comfortable, and convenient setting from our partners at MilkMate!  Our partnership will be expanding from two locations to three in the coming months as we continue to support our over 70% female workforce,” says Tom McGurren, Head of Human Resources, Marc Fisher Footwear.

“We are thrilled to have expert retailer and fashion footwear company Marc Fisher Footwear jump on board the Milkmate movement of empowering working parents and the employers who support them. We hope they can inspire other like-minded retailers looking to support their working parents in tangible ways,” said Patrice Meagher, the Founder and CEO of MilkMate.
