With more than 20 years of experience in consumer packaged goods (CPG), executive leadership and management of global operations, Bowden will aid in BrightPet’s “aggressive path of expansion and innovation.”
“BrightPet has experienced incredible growth over the past several years and the opportunity to add someone with Donna’s background in the pet industry to our team will expand our ability to help our customers grow their brands in domestic and export marketing,” said Matt Golladay, president of co-manufacturing and export.
