Press release: Pet Palette Distribution
Pet Palette Distribution, a Maryland-based leading national distributor of premium pet products, has recently welcomed two new territory sales representatives, Cheryl Bailey and Arianna Untereker, to its growing team. Both hires are well-seasoned to the pet industry and will use this experience to provide world-class service to independent retailers across the country.
“Both of our new sales team members have strong backgrounds in the pet industry and will play key roles in strengthening our communication with current customers in their territories, as well as building new relationship,” said Ron Metzger, Pet Palette Distribution CEO. “As we continue to add new brands and products to our offering and grow our business, it’s important that we also add the right people to represent us. The experience Cheryl and Arianna carry with them to Pet Palette Distribution, and most importantly their customers, is going to be extremely valuable. We’re thrilled to welcome them to the team.”
Bailey brings 15 years of industry experience with her to this new role, including time as a regional sales manager on the manufacturer side and inside sales key accounts manager in distribution, as well as 11 years as a veterinary technician prior to this. Her accomplished background will be an asset for the accounts she will service in the northeast territory of the U.S, which includes Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.
“It’s an exciting time to start this next chapter with Pet Palette Distribution with many new manufacturer partnerships being formed and the recent company rebrand,” said Bailey. “I’m looking forward to helping our retailers keep a fresh assortment of new products at the best prices, and I’m delighted for the opportunity to call on customers I’ve worked with in past endeavors.”
Untereker has been passionate about pets all her life and has worked in the industry for the better part of the last eight years on both the manufacturer and the retail sides, as well as a stint in the veterinary field. This experience brings a full understanding of her accounts’ needs from fulfillment and merchandising perspectives in addition to the needs of their customers. Untereker will service the north midwest territory for the company, which includes Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
“I’m excited to join this team of like-minded people who hold pet health and well-being as well as supporting independent pet retailers as their top priorities,” said Untereker. “It’s been a breath of fresh air to work for a distributor that truly cares enough to build its business around these ideals. I can’t wait to meet more of our customers at Global.”
