Nottinghamshire-based pet food manufacturer, Grove Pet Foods, has welcomed Marie Rowden to the team.

As Field Sales Executive for the South Coast from Kent to Cornwall, Marie is busy developing relationships with retailers throughout the region to promote the Vitalin and Alpha brands.

Marie previously worked for Countrywide and Jollyes, and also has a passion for dogs, rescuing her two Staffordshire-cross breeds Kali and Mia.

Said Marie: “After so many years working in retail it is great to get out and about meeting customers and supporting stores across the South.

“The Vitalin and Alpha ranges continue to go from strength to strength and it is great to join a go-ahead business such as Grove Pet Foods.

“I have a lot of interest in nutrition, health and wellbeing when it comes to dogs and am delighted to be representing such high quality brands in the dog, cat and ferret food sectors.”

Sales Manager, Sean Cox added: “Marie is very experienced and has a wealth of knowledge to bring to the team.  We are delighted to have her join Grove Pet Foods and look forward to seeing her develop the business further.”
