Greg Pitts has been appointed specialist pet trade sales and marketing director for the UK division of Royal Canin UK & Ireland. He replaces May Philpott, who has moved to a new role within the Royal Canin global team.
Jimmy Park, general manager of Royal Canin UK and Ireland, said: “Greg will be a great asset to our UK retail team as it continues its journey to deliver health through nutrition and to make a better world for pets.”
Mr Pitts began his FMCG career with GSK in account management, before moving to Danone where he worked in both sales and category management in the waters and dairies business units. Prior to joining Royal Canin, he broadened his experience through commercial leadership roles in the SME environment in both the yoghurt and fresh produce categories.
Mr Pitts said, “It’s inspiring to be joining a team that clearly lives and breathes its purpose everyday through its passion, enthusiasm and knowledge. I look forward to working with the team and our partners to continue our journey of bringing health through nutrition to many more cats and dogs.”
