Pet360 EVP & CMO Named Entrepreneur of the Year in 2013 Women in the Pet Industry Awards
Rose Hamilton, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer of Pet360, Inc., was named Entrepreneur of the Year in the inaugural Women in the Pet Industry awards on August 24 in Portland. Nominated for her leadership, vision, knowledge and passion, Hamilton has led the company’s evolution from a pure play E-Commerce business to a lifestyle brand focused on making pet parenting easier.
The Women in the Pet Industry awards celebrate the many women who dedicate their time and talents to improving the lives of pets and pet parents. The awards program recognizes five women in the following categories: Solopreneur, Entrepreneur, Corporation, Advocate and Rising Star. The Entrepreneur of the Year award is bestowed upon a woman who has both created a valuable service for pet owners and who actively uses her success to promote the overall welfare of pets and her community.
“Rose’s passion for pets and commitment to delivering best-in-class resources to pet parents inspires the entire Pet360 Pack to strive for greatness,” states Pet360 CEO Brock Weatherup. “And her command of consumer behavior, strategic marketing, and customer experience are helping to break new ground in the pet industry.”
Hamilton joined Pet360 in early 2011 and over the last 18 months has led the development and launch of Pet360.com – the only experience (digital or offline) that truly improves pet parents’ lives by offering expert information, an active community of pet parents and a vast assortment of products all in a highly personalized manner. Today, just nine months after its official launch, the website reaches more than 700,000 pet owners per month. In addition to her role as Pet360’s EVP and CMO, Hamilton sits on the board of directors for the Pennsylvania SPCA.
