Press release: The Honest Kitchen

The Honest Kitchen, the leading human grade pet food company, recently announced that consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry veteran, Will Lisman, has joined the company as its chief executive officer, effective immediately.

Will has an accomplished track record of driving growth and transformation in leadership positions at iconic consumer companies and brands. He previously served as the president and chief commercial officer of HumanCo, a mission driven company that invests in and builds brands focused on healthy living. Will also held key leadership roles at Amplify Snack Brands and The Hershey Company. He joins an accomplished management team that includes Chief Revenue Officer Mike Steck, chief financial officer Mike Albano, chief operations officer Steve Calderone and chief marketing officer Miki Dosen.

“I am thrilled to be joining The Honest Kitchen at such an exciting time in the company’s history,” said Lisman. “I have long admired the brand’s commitment to using only the highest-quality ingredients and its dedication to the health and well-being of pets. I look forward to working with the team to build on an already exciting trajectory and take the company and brand to new heights.”

The Honest Kitchen is continuing to experience significant growth across all sales channels and in recent months has completed an exciting expansion of its Topeka, Kansas, Whole Food Clusters production facility. The company has also relocated to new corporate offices in San Diego’s Mission Valley and successfully completed the process to become a Certified B Corporation, which cements its commitment to uphold environmental, social and governance values as it continues to grow and evolve.

“We underwent an extensive and truly uncompromising process this year to find the perfect CEO for the company,” commented Lucy Postins, The Honest Kitchen’s Founder and chief integrity officer. “In Will we’ve found someone who not only possesses the essential human-food know-how and overarching business acumen to lead us into the future, but also someone with humility, and a sensitivity towards people and culture, as well as an innate love of pets. We’re thrilled to have him as part of the team and can’t wait to work alongside him as The Honest Kitchen embarks on this next exciting chapter.”
