Gott Pet Products, purveyors of Charlee Bear Dog Treats and Hound & Gatos Natural Food for Pets, recently announced the addition of Adam Rosenbaum to its growing sales force. Effective immediately, Rosenbaum will serve as Territory Sales Manager – Northeast. In this capacity, he will be responsible for establishing strong, long-term relationships with distributors and retailers throughout the northeast United States.
Rosenbaum is eminently qualified to take on all the challenges of this new position, having held high-profile sales, retailer training and management positions in the pet products industry for over 25 years. He most recently served as Eastern Coast Sales Manager for The Company of Animals, a prominent UK-based provider of innovative training and behavioral products. He has also held senior sales management positions in the course of his career for Van Ness Plastic Molding, Iris USA, Coastal Pet Products and Four Paws, all market category leaders.
“We’re extremely pleased to welcome Adam aboard,” comments Patrick McGarry, General Manager of Gott Pet Products. “He brings a wealth of business-building insights and brand management talents to the mix as we expand our national presence and enter new food and treat categories.”
Gott Pet Products has had an exciting start to 2019. After announcing its corporate name change, the Wisconsin-based, family-owned company completely revamped packaging for both Charlee Bear Dog Treats and Hound & Gatos Natural Food for Pets. The fresh, new looks are intended to standout on shelves and attract a new generation of pet parents, while still appealing to the brands’ current and loyal customers. Furthermore, the company has beefed up its sales team. In addition to welcoming Adam Rosenbaum, Gott Pet Products has also added a new National Accounts Sales Manager and Territory Sales Manager West to support their continued growth.
