CEO of Company of Animals Is Stepping Down

He founded the firm in 1979.




Company of Animals founder and CEO Dr. Roger Mugford announced that he will step down as CEO of the organization in the spring to grow his new venture, Animal Insights Limited.

Paul Nolan, formerly operations director at Company of Animals, will move into the CEO role, the company stated in a press release.

Mugford, who is a pioneer in animal behavioral therapy and a prolific animal welfare advocate, will continue to work closely with Company of Animals, which he founded in 1979.

His new business venture “sets out to break new ground in the development of pet training products and will sit within his wider business portfolio,” according to the release.

Nolan, whose operations expertise led the business to improve its global supply chain, also held the role of CEO for the company’s U.S. division.

Commenting on his appointment, Nolan said: “Over the years, Roger has been instrumental in leading Company of Animals to international success, including creating the multi award-winning Halti Headcollar, while also achieving a great deal for animal welfare and other causes close to his heart.


“Company of Animals is an incredibly exciting and dynamic organisation and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to take on the role of CEO and build on the success of the business that Roger founded 40 years ago.”

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
