“We have made a lot of progress over the last several quarters to reinvigorate the iconic PetMeds business,” said Matt Hulett, president and CEO of PedMed Express. “We have invested in people, product, and strategy, including our foray into the pet telemedicine space. Our new leadership team has both digital transformation and scale experience, and the Board and I are thrilled to welcome Christine to the company. She is a seasoned finance professional with extensive experience in digital transformation in public and private companies. We have worked closely together for over 20 years, and I know first-hand that she has the turnaround chops and experience to help PetMeds into its next phase of growth.”
