Earth Animal Installs New Leadership



Earth Animal added two new members to its senior ranks in preparation for its next phase of growth. The family-owned veterinary formulated product company, offering No-Hide treats, herbal remedies, supplements and Dr. Bob's Wisdom Foods (launching this Spring), welcomed Stewart Shanley as chief executive officer, and Dr. Ryan Yamka as chief scientific officer. These appointments, coupled with Chris Moore's promotion to chief operating officer, are designed to augment Earth Animal's capabilities in growth management strategy, product innovation and operations.


"Company culture means so much to us, therefore, finding people who are purpose-driven to lead our team is incredibly important,” said Dr. Bob and Susan Goldstein, co-founders of Earth Animal. "Over the past couple of years, we have been in search of the ideal team to help take our company to the next level. We know with the addition of Stewart and Ryan, our leadership team is fully in place. We have never been more excited about our company position, growth opportunities and ability to truly make a difference.”



"Iris Worldwide, my former company, was built to be a relationship-oriented, purpose-driven and adventurous company committed to the highest levels of transparency and product quality,” said Shanley. “We became a powerful force in our industry as a result. Earth Animal has that exact same opportunity in the pet industry. We have the foundation, pillars and an amazing team! I am really looking forward to working with them and applying what I have learned from my experiences to continue building something very special that we can all be truly proud of."



"I have worked with Dr. Bob and Susan at different times over the past several years,” said Dr. Yamka, who previously worked at Blue Bluffalo. “My most recent consulting project on ingredient and product integrity this past summer really paved the way for my decision to join the company. After that project, I quickly realized that Earth Animal is a company of integrity, innovation and purpose and I knew I wanted to be a part of that."
