Chris Rowland

About

Chris Rowland has led Pet Supplies Plus and its team members to record growth since his appointment to Chief Executive Officer in October, 2014, and his strategy is a simple one: deliver a dazzling experience, outstanding value and incredible convenience to every neighbor who walks into our stores. Chris is a seasoned pet industry veteran, having pawed his way up the corporate ladder at PetSmart from 1996 to 2011 and making a name for himself in retail operation. Starting as a store manager in Toronto, he worked his way up to Vice President, US Operations and ultimately President of PetSmart Canada, where he and his turnaround team transformed the struggling retail chain into the largest and most profitable pet specialty retailer in Canada. Chris earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada. He has a human daughter and son, and two furry children, Tibetan spaniel Lillie and Pekingese Lexie. Most notably to team members at Pet Supplies Plus, Chris is “Dad” to white umbrella cockatoo Phoebe, the company’s attention-loving, sweet-talking “Chief Bird Officer.”
