Mat has created a unique and compelling vision while assembling a strong team of Investors, Advisers and Employees. As more and more consumers are waking up to the shortfalls of 'natural' cleaning and pest control products, the need for truly healthy alternatives is paramount," said Cade Swail. "I look forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead in this key role, the most critical of which is to prepare our manufacturing, operations and supply chain functions for the exceptional growth we see ahead."
