Peter Gottsacker


President, Gott Pet Products

A veteran of the food flavor and ingredient industry, Peter has always had a soft spot for dogs. Under his guidance, Charlee Bear treats have been embraced by millions and became a national brand. But through it all, Peter made sure these treats stayed true to their roots by never cutting corners on quality, wholesomeness or taste. After majoring in finance and accounting at Notre Dame, he completed studies in international marketing and finance at INSEAD France, as well as Harvard. Peter wears a number of hats at Gott Pet Products, makers of Charlee Bear treats. But of all of the roles in his life, his favorites are husband, father to his 6 children and grandfather to his 6 (soon to be 7) grandchildren.
