(PRESS RELEASE) Seattle-based company Austin and Kat , announces Tim McGee to the role of VP of sales. After 25+ years at PepsiCo in sales, marketing and operations roles, McGee created a unique consulting business designed to develop national sales and marketing strategies specializing in “start up” natural food and beverage companies including Califia Farms and ‘nuun’ Hydration. While at ‘nuun’, McGee worked alongside Founder and CEO, Tim Moxey, (Austin and Kat’s COO and Kat’s husband). Together, Moxey and McGee executed a national and international distribution network and developed marketing strategies resulting in massive growth which enabled ‘nuun’ to become the market share leader in the hydration supplement category. Navigating change through an ever-changing and demanding marketplace is what he does best.

McGee will be responsible for managing Austin and Kat’s sales and education team with a focus on developing even closer relationships with the company’s growing portfolio of distributors alongside regional and national accounts. He’ll also be implementing a comprehensive sales and marketing strategy as the company grows its hemp and non-hemp products.

McGee says, “I’m excited to join Austin and Kat and contribute to the amazing team and culture they have already established. The company has been growing in Independent Pet since 2014 and with Kat at the helm has built a reputation for making honest products that give tried and tested results. I was impressed that Austin and Kat makes everything from scratch at their Seattle Makery. In a world where outsourcing is the norm, we’re able to guarantee every ingredient that comes in the door meets our requirements for COA and sustainability standards.Kat’s story, our quality of products, and core industry expertise puts us in a great position for success – both in the short and long term.”

Austin and Kat is looking forward to McGee’s depth of knowledge in this space. “I’ve personally known McGee for ten years and having him join the team will be invaluable,” says Kat Donatello, founder Austin and Kat. “His depth of sales experience, coupled with his knowledge and love of the many Labrador Retrievers he’s owned over the years is an asset we’re proud to have.”

Austin and Kat began in Kat’s home kitchen in 2014, as a way to assist her aging dog Brady into his golden years with the help of hemp and botanical extracts . The company soon grew into a full-fledged product line of chews and oil, as well as non-CBD supplement powders. All Austin and Kat still produces everything by hand in small batches, using the very best all natural ingredients in their very own Seattle Makery.
