Pets at Home Foundation appoints new chair
The Pets at Home Foundation has appointed Robert Kent to succeed Louise Stonier as chair.
Stonier has led the charity for over 15 years and has recently moved to the role of chief operating officer at the retailer’s vet group, Vets4Pets.
Kent has worked as Pets at Home’s chief data officer since 2018 and is an established member of the group executive. Since joining the business, he has created a data and analytics capability from scratch and will be applying his experience and expertise to support the foundation’s ambitions.
Kent said: “I am thrilled to be joining the Pets at Home Foundation as chair. It is a wonderful charity that understands the difference pets make to people’s lives and works tirelessly to create a better world for pets and the people who love them.”
The Pets at Home Foundation has raised over £45 million for animal rescue organisations since it was established in 2006. This has included donating over £3.5 million in the last year alone.
Kent added: “Under Louise’s guidance, the team have achieved some incredible milestones and I am excited to have the opportunity to take over the baton, to work alongside the team and trustees, and to help shine a light on the incredible work they do.”
