New hires to the Skout’s Honor marketing team includes San Diego native Kristin DaRoza, director of B2B marketing, who comes to the pet brand with more than 15 years of consumer and retail marketing experience at such action sports industry brands as Nixon, Sole Technology and Sky Optics. In her new role, DaRoza will support the sales team in developing scalable retail marketing strategies to increase brand awareness, drive traffic and increase sales during the current climate of expanded pet essentials consumer interest.

On the sales team, Skout’s Honor also welcomes Torrey Schaefer, national sales manager, who will lead all B2B partnerships.

Further expanding the national sales manager team, Ashley Osmundson has joined the Skout’s Honor family directly from a 12 year tenure at Nestle, inclusive of six years focused on Nestle Purina. With expansive experience in supply chain, manufacturing, procurement, and sales, alongside management of brand launches and product line expansions, Osmundson is proud to have received three Customer Excellence Awards- a trend she hopes to continue in her new role at Skout’s Honor.
