According to the firm Johnson brings with him “a wealth” of retail and sales experience, with 18 years experience in the industry.
After starting out at Jollyes Pet Superstores, where he worked in “multiple” roles and won a “Store of the Year Award”, he has continued to build his sales career at Pets Choice UK, Hills Science Plan, Forthglade Foods and most recently launched Japanese pet food brand Inaba into the UK.
Wilsons said Johnson joins the team at an “exciting time” with a new factory in the process and recent team expansion.
Johnson said: “As an exciting up-and-coming brand, Wilsons Pet Food experienced high growth in 2021 and with dedicated resources now at hand, we can really drive the business forward.
“I am thrilled to join the talented and enthusiastic team at Wilsons Pet Food. This historic brand not only tells a great story of a well-respected Scottish business, but the product looks great on the shelf and is made with top quality ingredients at the cutting edge of pet food nutrition with sustainable packaging.”
He added: “It has also been great getting to know our customers, who have all had to overcome so many obstacles through both Covid-19 and Brexit while still putting pets first in a difficult climate.”
“I believe my experience in the pet industry combined with my enthusiasm for the pet trade has given me the opportunity to put together a winning formula for success and I look forward to expanding our stockists and building the Wilsons brand.”
