Can You Tell Us Some More About Your Position Here at Freshpet?

I help to keep all Freshpet computer systems up and running. Because so much of our business is technologically driven, it’s imperative that everyone’s systems are running smoothly and safely. I get all sorts of questions, from being locked out of computers to confusion around how to use a new system – it certainly keeps me busy!

What’s Been Your Favorite Part Since You Started With Freshpet?

Well, I’ve been here since the beginning, so I’ve seen it all. But going through the process of selecting which hardware, software and tools to use was very exciting (at least it is for I.T. geeks like me!). This kind of opportunity, to choose big systems like this and then oversee the project through to implementation, doesn’t happen often, and I’ve gotten to do it twice now, the second time being when we opened the Freshpet Kitchens.

Can You Tell Us More About Your Dog, Kavy?

Kavy is a Shih Tzu and while he will always pick my wife over me, we all love him very much. It’s funny because Kavy only barks if he cannot reach a toy, or if there is an animal outside the house and the door is closed. However, if you open the door for him to go chase the animal, he darts for cover – no more barking. All bark and no bite! Kavy loves his Freshpet Select Homestyle Meals the best.
