Ziwi, manufacturer of air-dried pet nutrition, has announced Brandon Edmunds is joining the team of staff as the Lower Midwest Territory Manager. In this role, Edmunds will help with overall brand development and messaging, as the company continues to expand its presence in the global pet food market.
Founded in 2004, Ziwi has established itself as an innovator and global leader in air-dried pet nutrition and is one of the leading pet food brands exported from New Zealand.
Brandon grew up in Dallas and received his BBA in Marketing from Texas Tech University. He later went on to attain an MBA in Marketing Management from the University of Dallas. He comes to Ziwi with a tremendous amount of sales and marketing experience from his previous position as a Territory Manager and Key Account Manager. While Edmunds is new to the pet food industry, his love for animals and passion for marketing and sales, make him a perfect addition to the Ziwi team.
“Brandon comes to Ziwi with a lot of experience working for rapidly growing companies, and he enjoys building relationships with independent retailers,” said Ziwi USA Vice President of Sales, Heather Hickey. “He will be a great asset to our team.”
Ziwi was founded on the philosophy of a whole prey, high meat diet, which research has shown to be the most natural and effective diet to promote optimum health for dogs and cats.
Ziwi’s expanding portfolio of air-dried and canned dog and cat foods and oral chews are crafted in small batches in New Zealand and exported to more than 30 countries around the world.
