“Carol Frank was instrumental in helping W. F. Young in developing a focused acquisition search in both the equine and canine product categories. We’d done an effective job in the past on acquiring brands. However, we needed someone with a higher level of experience and knowledge of the canine industry who could take us levels beyond where we were. Carol had the talent, experience level, and ability to further propel W. F. Young forward in its strategic direction. Carol and her associates were very effective in providing the resources to lead and support our acquisition search. She is a pleasure to work with, and assimilated within our acquisition team seamlessly. In no time at all, she became a valued member of the W. Y. Young team.”
