The Company of Animals, a leading international supplier of training and behavior-enhancing products for pets, announced that Michelle Carter has recently been hired as western regional sales manager. She will be responsible for independent pet specialty accounts from Montana to New Mexico and west.
Carter got her start in the pet industry as a service dog trainer, which led to a position with Chuck Latham Associates in 2000. Since then, she has held sales management positions of increasing responsibility with the Greenies Company, Greenies/Mars Petcare, Bravo Pet Foods and Inaba Foods USA. In joining The Company of Animals, Carter commented that she has come full circle back to her first love, the art and science of humanely training pets.
“We’re extremely pleased that Michelle has become a key member of our sales management team,” said Larry Cobb, Chief Executive Officer of The Company of Animals U.S. Division. “She’s great at building customer relationships, and shares our commitment to invent and promote products that are kinder to pets while helping them become more well-behaved companions.”
In her off hours, Carter loves playing tennis with her husband and has recently taken up golf. She has one dog, Daisy, an aged, rescued maltipoo.
