The raw dog food producer Paleo Ridge has renewed its leadership team. Obtaining an investment amounting to £2 million ($2.5 million) from Ashridge Capital, the company has advanced a couple of its own persons employed to leadership positions.
Will Green former head of sales and marketing, who came to the company in 2020 as e-commerce manager, will now work as director of sales and marketing operating a team of eight.
Chris Jones, working for Paleo Ridge as head of supply chain since 2018, has been advanced to director of supply.
Last year Dainius Kinta joined the company as production manager. He has been promoted to head of operations.
Furthermore, there have been various new employees now supporting Paleo Ridge. Ton Christiaanse came from both Brakes and Unilever and now holds the position as non-executive chairman. Graeme Banfield was appointed new finance director while Ashridge Capital’s founder and chief executive officer, David Sherratt, joined as non-executive director.
“I am thrilled with the promotions of Chris and Will to the director positions following their outstanding performance at Paleo Ridge,” Christiaanse said. “We are at such an exciting stage, and I look forward to continuing to grow the business and its standing in the pet food market. It’s a pleasure to be working with an accomplished team with the expertise to maintain the fast pace of growth and development that Paleo Ridge has displayed in recent years.”
According to the company, this led to a 10% growth since the beginning of 2022.
“We’re delighted to have welcomed such talented and experienced additions in recent times – not only to our executive leadership team but across the entire business,” said Tyler Daly, chief executive officer of Paleo Ridge. “It’s been a big year for Paleo Ridge and expanding our team is a key part of our plans to continue driving growth. We’re also really pleased to see so many promotions within the business and additional new hires. Paleo Ridge is a family of hard workers who bring passion and expertise to everything they do. We’re glad to support our staff in their individual growth alongside that of the business.”
