Jones Naturals Leverages New Personnel to Focus on Efficiencies and Growth

August 27, 2019

Press release: Jones Naturals

Under the leadership of Laura Jones, COO, Jones Naturals is focused on improving operational processes and systems to ensure continued growth and profitability. This effort led to forgoing the annual SuperZoo Trade Show this year, but Laura remains confident about 2020 and beyond.

“Jones’ priority has always been to manufacture the highest quality, natural USA dog treats and chews and provide excellent customer service,” said Laura. “With the support of our board of directors, and a dedicated team of employees, we are directing our attention back to the basics that helped this company become successful over the past 30 years. The steps we are taking now will allow us to continue to experience growth and success in the future.”

As part of this effort, Jones recently filled two positions with experienced leaders who bring a wealth of knowledge to the organization: Michael Coyle (VP of operations) and Steve Doherty (director of sales).

Coyle brings an extensive knowledge of manufacturing and operations with more than 16 years of experience across multiple food and beverage platforms. In a short span, he has increased efficiencies 25 percent over 2018, and is tracking the usage of an additional shrink wrap machine installed in Q1 in order to maximize its capacity.

Doherty is an experienced sales manager and adviser with 30-plus years working in consumer-packaged goods and beverages markets across multiple channels. He has a thorough understanding of sales strategies and merchandising, and will also oversee Jones’ existing sales teams to support existing customer relationships and seek opportunities for growth.
