Hyper Pet Names New CEO
Hyper Pet LLC, a maker of dog toys, announced that Tim Blurton, the company’s executive vice president, has been promoted to CEO. Blurton has worked for almost 30 years with some of the biggest brands, including Royal Canin and Mars.
Blurton has experience in establishing new businesses, such as Royal Canin Veterinary Diets, and in turning declining companies into cash-generating powerhouses, according to Hyper Pet. Blurton joined Hyper Pet as executive vice president in early 2016; his promotion follows the retirement announcement of Randy Woods, Hyper Pet veteran of 20 years and CEO for the past 12 years.
“I am so proud of the business growth, development and success Hyper Pet has enjoyed over the years,” Woods said. “And, I couldn’t be more confident that under Tim’s new leadership, the company will continue to evolve and deliver success for years to come.”
“There’s no question that I have some big shoes to fill here at Hyper Pet,” Blurton said. “But I am thrilled to be taking the lead as CEO and look forward to constantly innovating with our team and continuing to offer our customers the high quality interactive toys leashes and collars the brand is renowned for.”
