BUSINESS - New Leader at Royal Canin USA

With Keith Levy assuming a new global leadership position within Mars' recently merged confectionery business, Kamie McHenry Eckert has been named president of Royal Canin USA.

"Kamie is a brilliant strategist who brings a strong vision for this company and is well positioned to continue to grow the US business," said Levy.

"She is also committed to the customer experience – driving the business to make choices based on how it helps customers expand their category while also ensuring pets live the healthiest possible lives."

Eckert began her career with Royal Canin USA as the eBusiness and eCommerce Director, building this function of the business from the ground level in 2013, including launching B2B eCommerce, a B2C website platform and the market's CRM architecture.

In 2015, Eckert was named Vice President of Retail, eCommerce and Professional Network sales teams, overseeing integration of strategy across multiple customer groups.

Last year she was appointed Vice President of Veterinary Sales and Chief Customer Officer.

During 2016, the business experienced record sales and earnings under her leadership.

"My focus going forward is to continue to grow the business, engage consumers and pet owners, deliver precise nutrition for pets, and ensure Royal Canin is top of mind for pet owners in the US," Eckert said.
"However, I am most excited to lead a team of passionate associates who continually make Royal Canin a great place to work by living the mission of making the world a better place for pets."

Prior to joining Royal Canin, Eckert held roles at Calphalon (a division of Newell Rubbermaid) and Macy's (formerly May Department Stores).
