Pre Brands Hires Growth Expert Ryan Youngman as Chief Sales Officer and Partners with Industry-Leading Business Development Agency FDM Sales Management
New hire to lead aggressive national expansion of premium consumer brand
Pre® Brands, a rapidly growing premium consumer brand currently innovating in beef, is excited to announce both the hire of Ryan Youngman as Chief Sales Officer and its partnership with FDM Sales Management.
Youngman is a 20+ year veteran of the natural products industry who brings unique experience to Pre, having led multiple emerging consumer brands through their hyper-growth stages (Brad’s Raw, Cocoroons, and Kohana Cold Brew Coffee), as well as having held leadership roles in retail (Whole Foods) and distribution (United Natural Foods Inc). He will lead Pre’s sales strategy, partnerships, organization, and execution.
“Pre has only scratched the surface of what’s possible for its brand,” says Youngman. “The opportunity to further propel Pre’s leadership within the beef category, and beyond, is going to be a fun challenge.”
Youngman’s first key step in growing Pre is its partnership with FDM Sales Management. This partnership positions Pre to aggressively scale nationally across multiple channels, leveraging FDM’s deep industry relationships born of their reputation for scaling many of the most exciting new consumer brands.
“We are passionate about taking on exciting consumer brands and helping them grow rapidly,” says Fred Neubauer, President & CEO of FDM Sales Management. “We are excited to partner with Pre, helping its highly innovative consumer-led proposition realize its full potential.”
Pre is uniquely well positioned to effectively scale its premium consumer brand nationally. Pre’s streamlined assortment of grass fed and finished steaks, ground beef, burgers, and roasts appeal to growing consumer preferences for high-quality beef without compromises.
