In a move that further cements its commitment to the future development of the business, the UK and Europe’s number one expert in raw and natural pet foods, Natures Menu, has made several appointments to its marketing and sales teams.
Nick Munby has joined the company as Marketing Manager with Tracy Martin coming on board as the company’s E- Commerce and Digital Manager. Luke Petipher and Lilianna Mazzocchi have joined the company as Business Development Managers for the South East and West, respectively.
Nick has over 20 years’ experience working with high profile FMCG brands including Jeyes, Kettle Foods and Hain Daniels. Tracy has more than 20 years’ e-commerce and digital experience and most recently was Head of Animal Direct, part of the UK’s largest group of veterinary practices, the CVS Group.
Lilliana has over a decade’s worth of experience working for Mars fishcare, selling in to the pet and aquatic trade and Luke has spent the last three years working as a representative for pet trade supplier, FERPLAST.
These appointments represent growing investment by Natures Menu in new expertise to assist with the rapid growth in demand for raw and raw-inspired foods. It follows the appointment of James Langan as Commercial Director and Tina Bryne as UK Sales Trade Manager earlier in the year.
Craig Taylor, Managing Director of Natures Menu said: “I am delighted to be adding to the expertise we have in the business, to continue to help drive and manage the rapid growth within the raw pet food sector. There are many exciting developments happening for us this year, including the upcoming opening of our brand-new factory, and these appointments further demonstrate our commitment to investing in the future of the company.”
Natures Menu has seen a rapid uptake in sales and stockists of its raw and raw-inspired meals within the trade and veterinary sectors and has appointed a number of senior managers to its business over recent months. It will open a new multimillion site at Snetterton in autumn 2017 to create further capacity for its existing portfolio as well as the operational capability to deliver new and innovative products into the market.
