On Wednesday, the PIJAC Board of Directors voted to offer the positions of President and CEO to Ed Sayres.
This decision followed a lengthy search process and internal discussions, during which Ed’s unique combination of experience and perspective distinguished him from other candidates. We have discussed his previous statements and actions with him at length and believe that he shares our firm commitment to the health and well-being of pets and all of the businesses and individuals who support them, both within PIJAC and the broader pet trade.
PIJAC will continue to promote responsible pet ownership and animal welfare, foster environmental stewardship and ensure the availability of pets across the country through legislative and regulatory engagement on behalf of the pet industry at the federal, state and local levels. We are grateful to all of our members and those who continue to support us in our mission.
