Press release: Royal Canin
Royal Canin North America, a division of Mars, Incorporated, recently announced that Chris Moses has been appointed site leader for the Royal Canin Pet Health Nutrition Center (PHNC) in Lewisburg, Ohio.
Moses brings nearly 20 years of animal health experience into this crucial role, focused on expanding the company’s research capabilities in the rapidly growing North American market.
Moses serendipitously discovered this role while contacted during an airport layover and, upon initial conversations with the business, called his move a “no-brainer.”
He shared, “I was immediately enamored by what Royal Canin stands for – it truly is about the pets. Products are not designed to appease pet parents but to find the proper diet for each individual cat and dog.”
In his role, Moses is responsible for overseeing a team of 71 experts who assess digestibility and palatability of Royal Canin diets. In addition, the PHNC provides focus in specific areas and key priorities for the business, such as skin and coat health, mobility, immunity and aging. This additional level of expertise helps enable increased nutritional precision and development of products tailored to individual pet needs. The PHNC is one of two Royal Canin pet centers globally for the business and the only U.S.-based location.
“The innovation process is critical to all we do at Royal Canin to meet the unique needs of cats and dogs, and I am thrilled to have Chris help lead the process in North America. His passion, charisma, and deep love of animals will enable him to continuously elevate the great work of the team in Lewisburg,” according to Dr. Denise Elliot, global vice president of research and development for Royal Canin.
Prior to joining Royal Canin, Moses held various roles of increasing responsibilities across the pet industry, including research, customer service, animal facility management and more. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science from Virginia State University. He has one daughter and plans to adopt a cat or dog soon. A native of Newport News, Virginia, Moses relocated to the Lewisburg, Ohio area where he immediately became an active member of the community. He attends the Lewisburg Business Leaders and Chamber of Commerce monthly meetings and recently started volunteering for the Victory Project in Dayton where he will serve as a mentor for disengaged young men.
