Chuck Latham Associates has acquired the pet specialty business from Burns & Associates. This came on the heels of CLA’s purchase of Tomas Sales in February and further bolsters CLA’s coast-to-coast pet specialty sales and retail coverage.

Burns & Associates pet sales team members Cathy Arnn and Terry Savedra will be joining CLA.

“Brian Burns has built a great team in the Southwest and we are honored that his team will be joining CLA”, said Chuck Latham, CEO of CLA. “This acquisition will strengthen our strategy of becoming the only national pet specialty sales and marketing service firm in the USA. We are excited to have Cathy and Terry join the CLA team, and we wish Brian continued success.”

Burns & Associates will continue representing their manufacturers in the FDM, military and off price channels.
