Phillips Pet Food & Supplies Announces Commercial Leadership Succession Plan

Greg Cyr Appointed Chief Commercial Officer

Sheryl Maher, Chief Marketing Officer, Announces Planned Retirement

EASTON, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Phillips Pet Food & Supplies (“Phillips” and the “Company”), a leading
and fast-growing nationwide distributor of pet food and supplies, today
announced the appointment of Greg Cyr as Chief Commercial Officer
beginning May 9, 2016. The announcement coincides with the planned
retirement of Sheryl Maher, Chief Marketing Officer.

Greg joins Phillips with over 20 years of distribution, marketing and
manufacturing experience, including 10 years of pet specialty
experience. Greg was most recently Vice President of Customer
Development for Mars Petcare Specialty Division, where he was
responsible for all sales, marketing, sales operations and trade spend
management. He also served as President with another leading pet
specialty distributor and has worked in marketing roles in
consumer-packaged goods. In his new role as CCO, Greg will be
responsible for the management of the Company’s vendor partnerships,
sales, customer care, and marketing initiatives.

“We’ve gotten to know Greg over the last couple of years as both a
competitor and a vendor and have come to truly respect him in both
roles. Having a deep working knowledge of our industry uniquely
positions him to best serve our customers and vendors. He brings a
passion for the industry and commitment to collaborating with our
existing team and partners, consistent with the Phillips values,” said
Sheryl Maher.

“I am pleased to welcome Greg to our team as Chief Commercial Officer,”
said Todd Shelton, Chief Executive Officer. “Over the course of his
career, Greg has demonstrated an exceptional ability to anticipate
customer needs and work closely with his team to develop innovative
solutions that contribute to his customers’ success.”

“I have observed the quality of the Phillips organization over the past
five years and am excited to be joining the team,” said Mr. Cyr.

Having last year announced her plan to retire, Sheryl will continue to
support the leadership team through a seamless transition of customer
and vendor relationships.

“On behalf of everyone at Phillips, we want to extend a special note of
thanks to Sheryl for all that she has done to make Phillips what it is
today,” said Kent Weldon, Chairman of the Board. “While I know she is
looking forward to a well-deserved retirement, no one has worked with
more commitment to success than Sheryl. Her support for our leadership
team through this transition period is deeply appreciated.”
