OAK CREEK, Wis., May 1, 2024 — Stella & Chewy’s, the category leader in the raw pet food space, announces the appointment of Marie Moody to interim Chief Executive Officer and the promotion of David Kapic to President, effective immediately.

Marie Moody, who founded the company in 2003 and has served on the Board of Directors for more than 15 years, assumes the role of interim CEO, succeeding Marc Hill, who previously held the position since 2017. Moody’s entrepreneurial spirit, deep understanding of the pet food industry and inherent love for pets have been instrumental in driving Stella & Chewy’s growth since its inception.

“Stella & Chewy’s was founded on a commitment to bring pets and pet parents the best in nutrition since I know first-hand that selecting your pet’s food is one of the most important decisions a pet parent makes,” said Moody. “I’m thrilled to continue working alongside the Stella & Chewy’s team as we remain committed to finding new, innovative ways for pet parents to show pets their love through premium raw and natural pet food.”

In his previous role as Chief Operations Officer, David Kapic’s strategic mindset and exceptional leadership contributed significantly to the company’s operations. In his new role as President, Kapic will be responsible for driving growth with our valued partners, focusing on making raw food more accessible and approachable, ensuring pet parents have access to high-quality products, and will continue to lead the sales enterprise alongside Moody until a Chief Sales Officer is appointed.

“Stella & Chewy’s offers best-in-class products, made by a best-in-class team,” said Kapic. “I am eager to continue collaborating with this passionate group of pack members dedicated to helping pets and pet parents thrive through raw food while driving new business and growth opportunities for the company.”
