Northstar Investors Acquires Pet Buddies
“The acquisition of Pet Buddies was a natural for the company,” said Sean Rowe, general manager for Pet Buddies. “We have been in the pet industry for more than a decade and are thrilled to have taken on this unique, high-quality line of pet toys and grooming products for dogs and cats.”
Sean Rowe has spent the past 13 years in the pet industry. His primary achievement in that time was the growth and development of Veterinary Ventures, Inc., makers of the Drinkwell brand of pet water fountains. Sean Rowe designed and developed more than a dozen new products, was awarded six patents and grew sales ten times before the company sold to PetSafe.
Coby Rowe has been named the company’s sales manager. With more than 15 years experience in sales and operations, he most recently served as business development manager for NorthStar Investors. He also previously served as general manager of Glacier Glove, an outdoor apparel company.
