Press release: PetDine
PetDine, a large contract manufacturer of pet supplements and treats, recently announced that visionary leader Elizabeth Barth has joined the company as chief operating officer. In the newly created position, Barth will support CEO Preston Munsch in executing PetDine’s strategic roadmap for furthering clients’ brands and the company’s vision for sustained growth and maximized profitability.
From global market companies to industry startups, Barth has held numerous executive and operational leadership roles, most recently as vice president of strategic business development, innovation and marketing at Olam International, a $47 billion global food and agriculture business. At PetDine, Barth will lead operational efforts for clients’ go-to-market processes, build and execute focused P&L strategies aimed at accelerated revenue growth, and optimize PetDine’s overall business portfolio.
“From my initial meeting with the PetDine team, two things stood out: the passion they have for helping customers achieve their business goals and an unwavering dedication to creating the highest quality products for pets,” said Barth. “I look forward to working with this innovative team to help our customers capitalize on opportunities in the pet industry for years to come.”
Barth joins PetDine in the midst of exponential growth in pet supplement and pet treat manufacturing. PetDine plans to build on its successes in contract manufacturing by increasing production output, launching industry leading product features and services, extending its team and continuing to expand offerings for clients looking to scale their brands.
“Elizabeth is distinctly qualified to support PetDine’s capabilities and integrate all our processes into a truly unified platform with ADM on behalf of our clients,” said Munsch. “With her breadth of knowledge and executive leadership, PetDine’s team will be better posed to ensure customers’ success initiatives and goals in 2022 and beyond.”
Barth’s expertise spans beyond operations and strategic development, with previous experience in commercialization, research and development and many other cross-functional business areas, with a focus on championing high-profile initiatives in corporate and customer development that lead to profitable results. Prior to Barth’s tenure at Olam International, she was executive director/general manager at Mizkan, a $2 billion global food company, and associate director of customer and consumer marketing at Mead Johnson Nutrition, a $4 billion food, nutrition and supplement company.
