Inspired Pet Nutrition – the UK’s largest independent producer of dry pet food – has strengthened its commercial team with three new national account appointments.

All the new arrivals – Tom Keighley, Rob Scrimger and Josh Underwood – were previously at Asda and bring with them a total of more than 20 years experience gained both in-store and in national buying roles.

Tom, who was at Asda for five years as a merchandising analyst and a buying manager, will be IPN’s national account manager for Morrison’s, the Co-Op and Bookers.

Rob spent nine years in-store and was latterly a buying assistant. In his new post as a national account executive, he will be working across multiple accounts and project managing NPD.

Finally, Josh, who has joined as a junior national account manager, has more than 5 years buying experience and will be focussing on further developing IPN’s business with Asda.  Both Rob and Tom are proud Labrador owners.

Tom Page, sales & marketing director at Yorkshire-based IPN, said: “These new arrivals bring with them a wealth of top quality retail and account management skills. They will play key roles as we look to increase both our branded and own label sales with the leading multiples.”
