Nick Munby and Tracy Martin join the team

Natures Menu has made several appointments in its marketing and sales teams.

Nick Munby has joined the company as marketing manager with Tracy Martin coming on board as the company’s e-commerce and digital manager. Luke Petipher and Lilianna Mazzocchi have also joined the company, as business development managers for the South East and West respectively.
Nick has more than 20 years of experience working with high-profile FMCG brands including Jeyes, Kettle Foods and Hain Daniels. Tracy has more than 20 years’ e-commerce and digital experience and most recently was head of Animal Direct, part of the UK’s largest group of veterinary practices, the CVS Group.
Lilliana has more than a decade’s worth of experience working for Mars fishcare, selling into the pet and aquatic trade, and Luke has spent the last three years working as a representative for pet trade supplier Ferplast.
These appointments represent growing investment by Natures Menu in new expertise to assist with the rapid growth in demand for raw and raw-inspired foods. They follow the appointment of James Langan as commercial director and Tina Bryne as UK sales trade manager earlier in the year.
Craig Taylor, managing director of Natures Menu, said: “I am delighted to be adding to the expertise we have in the business, to continue to help drive and manage the rapid growth within the raw pet food sector. There are many exciting developments happening for us this year, including the upcoming opening of our brand-new factory, and these appointments further demonstrate our commitment to investing in the future of the company.”

Natures Menu has seen a rapid uptake in sales and stockists within the trade and veterinary sectors and has appointed a number of senior managers to its business over recent months. It will open a new multi-million site at Snetterton this autumn to create further capacity for its existing portfolio as well as the operational capability to deliver new and innovative products into the market.
