Skout’s Honor COO Pete Stirling Recognized in Pet Age Magazine’s “Forty Under 40” Awards

pressclip_40under40-02
We are proud to announce that our Chief Operating Officer (COO) Pete Stirling has been recognized by Pet Age Magazine in their 2016 “Forty Under 40” Awards.

The intent of the Forty Under 40 awards is to honor today’s up-and coming pet industry leaders. These are individuals who have shown their devotion to the success of the pet industry and a commitment to professional excellence. To be nominated, an individual had to meet criteria that included being 39 years old or younger at the time of the nomination and possessing significant authority for decision making within a pet-related company or organization.

“We’re excited that Pet Age is honoring Pete for his leadership, community service and dedication to the pet industry – we are proud to have him as a critical member of our team,” said Macon Brock, CEO and founder of Skout’s Honor. “His passion for building Skout’s Honor as a disruptive pet specialty brand and his rock-solid integrity are characteristics that continue to drive success for the company and also motivates our team on a daily basis. Congrats, Pete!”

Pete started his career in retail marketing and developed an aptitude for customer development and excellent service has always been a natural talent and key driver for the success he has accomplished in a variety of roles. In 2007, he co-founded and launched Waterman’s Sunscreen, where he organized the sales and operations platforms and helped the company grow into a national brand in less than a year. Further, his consulting expertise was also instrumental in the unprecedented growth of the Stand Up paddleboard industry across the USA.

Pete has always had a passion for animal rights and has been a pet parent for most of his life. His ability to quickly engage and motivate his colleagues, as well as educate and inspire industry partners (distributors, retailers, customers) is an undeniable quality that has greatly contributed to the fast growth and success of Skout’s Honor as an international brand in the pet specialty marketplace.

The Forty Under 40 award recipients will be recognized and profiled in the December 2016 issue of Pet Age magazine and the full list of winners can be found here.

Skout’s Honor Wins Industry Recognition Award!

We are honored to announce Skout’s Honor as the WINNER in the “Dog/Cat Stain & Odor Removal Products” category in the Pet Business Industry Recognition Awards!

Pet Business celebrates the best that the pet care category has to offer with the 15th-annual Industry Recognition Awards.


It was another year of growth for the pet industry, which is expected to surpass the $62-billion mark by the end of 2016, according to the American Pet Products Association. While much of this success can be attributed to the continued trend toward treating pets as valued members of the family, manufacturers have also played a key role by making pet ownership easier and more fun for consumers while giving pet stores the opportunity to stand out in a very competitive retail landscape by keeping assortments fresh and engaging.

With this in mind, each year Pet Business honors the industry’s standout products with the Industry Recognition Awards (IRA). Now in their 15th year, the IRAs are selected by the Pet Business editors after scouring the industry for the most exciting and functional products on the market, as well as worthy candidates in categories such as best packaging redesign and best vendor website.

The Bark is the magazine of modern dog culture—it speaks to the serious dog enthusiast. The Bark is the indispensable guide to life with dogs, showing readers how to live smartly and rewardingly with their canine companions.

Today, The Bark has a nationwide readership of over 250,000. It is published four times a year, available by subscription and sold at Barnes & Noble, Whole Foods and PetsMart stores.

Taking the magazine’s slogan to heart—Dog Is My Co-Pilot—The Bark became the first magazine to tap into the exploding phenomena of dog culture and lifestyle, focusing on the growing bond between individuals and their pet companions. Over the past twenty years, The Bark has chronicled the America’s love affair with dogs, the evolving status of canine pets and their role in society, as well as the incredible rise in services and products. The Bark has become the recognized expert on the social/cultural world of dogs in America, and what they mean to us.

The Bark’s impeccable pedigree includes publishing many of today’s most acclaimed authors including Ann Patchett, Augusten Burroughs, Rick Bass, Amy Hempel, and Pulitzer Prize winning poet Mary Oliver.

Skout’s Honor Wins Pet Valu Award for Best Product Launch of the Year!

petvalu-award-final

We are very excited to announce that Skout’s Honor was named the WINNER for “Best Product Launch in Dog Supplies” by Pet Valu, one of the fastest-growing retail chains in the world.

In April 2016, Pet Valu began carrying the complete Skout’s Honor product line (our Stain & Odor Remover, Urine Destroyer, Odor Eliminator, Litter Box Deodorizer, Patio Cleaner & Deodorizer and Cat Urine & Odor Destroyer). To date, the line has exceeded initial expectations and is proving to be a successful brand for the international pet specialty retailer.

“This is an award voted on by Pet Valu’s category management team and we chose Skout’s Honor because it offered a variety of criteria including great packaging, new innovation and it also met and exceeded our sales goals,” said Derek Ritson, category manager in pet supplies for Pet Valu. “We are pleased with the partnership we have formed and are excited to continue to grow the business together.”

Pet Valu is a specialty retailer of pet food and pet-related supplies with more than 770 stores across Canada and the US. Pet Valu offers more than 7,000 products, including a broad assortment of premium, super premium and holistic private label brands scientifically developed by internal nutritionists. Pet Valu is currently the exclusive retailer in Canada for Skout’s Honor products.

“From the very beginning, we set out to create powerful and safe cleaning products that pet parents can rely on to make their lives easier every day,” said Macon Brock, president and founder for Skout’s Honor. “It is an honor to be recognized by one of the world’s leading retailers in pet specialty with an award that directly acknowledges the efforts we’ve made to launch a brand new product line that meets that goal.”

Skout’s Honor is Better, Faster, Stronger than other products in its category, due to a proprietary odor eliminating technology and BioKore™ – a revolutionary green cleaning technology that breaks down and lifts away stains on contact. Both ingredients are biodegradable, bio-renewable and non-toxic – offering the most powerful and easy-to-use cleaning solutions on the market, while still being safe for use around pets, family and home.

The company’s eco-friendly approach is coupled with a socially conscious business model via its Skout’s Paw Pledge – a program that donates a day’s worth of food to a shelter animal with every product sold.

Pet X Talk with Skout’s Honor on Innovations in Green Cleaning Technology

This month, Skout’s Honor was invited to give a “Pet X” talk about the innovations and next generation of green pet cleaning products. In the video, our VP Pete Stirling touches on a variety of points, including:

  • A brief history of stain & odor technologies and products in the pet marketplace
  • Why green-cleaning matters and the increasing demand from pet owners for eco-friendly, safer products
  • Consumer myths about green cleaning products
  • The California Green Chemistry Initiative 
  • The next generation of green cleaning solutions
  • What to look for when choosing a green cleaning product 
  • Why being “green and safe” does not mean that you have to give up power and strength

Wondering what makes Skout’s Honor products work Better, Faster, Stronger?

Our proprietary BioKore™ technology enables us to offer the most powerful cleaning products on the market that are still environmentally-friendly and safe to use around pets, family and the home.

A few BioKore facts:

  • Non-enzyme (never expires, requires no pre-treatment, not affected by variables like temperature or pet antibiotics)
  • Surfactant-based (derived from vegetable oils) with 3 times the cleaning power of other products
  • Works immediately to remove stains and odors
  • Matches or exceeds the effectiveness of chemicals that many companies are being forced to remove from their products as a result of the California Green Chemistry Initiative

Have more questions about how our green cleaning technology works? Email us at info@skoutshonor.com.

Thanks again to Rob Semrow and the Pet X Talks team for this opportunity!
