Mr. Cahill has 28 years of management experience in a variety of industries, including food processing, industrial manufacturing and chemicals. During his tenure as President of Doane Pet Care, Mr. Cahill grew this company from $300 Million in sales to $1 Billion through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions.

After the sale of Doane, Mr. Cahill continued as President of Mars Petcare USA for three years, integrating various acquisitions into a $4 Billion sales company before retiring in 2009. Prior to joining Doane, Mr. Cahill was an executive at Olin Corporation for 13 years, where he served as President of the Winchester Division, a $400 Million global munitions business, and Worldwide General Manager for the company’s branded Pool Chemicals Business. Still active in business and philanthropy, Mr. Cahill remains an advisor to Mars, Incorporated and serves on the board of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee, among other activities.
