Before that, Mohan has worked with National Geographic, Fox Networks Group, Group M, O&M, FBC Media, and Endemol. Swati Mohan, CBO, HUFT said on her appointment, “After years of building and scaling global Media businesses, I’m excited about this leap into the pet care industry; one that is projected to reach over $2B over the coming years. As a pet parent myself, it has been inspiring to have witnessed what Rashi and the team at HUFT have built through their stores, experiences, and products; a brand with a sole mission to treat pets and their needs no less than those of any family member; making it the undisputed leader in the category. I look forward to integrating this vision into the next phase of growth where we shall infuse tech & personalization, e-commerce, content, and community to build out both the brand and business as the go-to platform for any and every pet parent need.”
