GVL, a leading provider of technology solutions to veterinarians and animal health professionals, announced Feb. 25 the addition of its new executive leadership team member, Vice President of Product Matt Keller.

As VP of Product, Keller will collaborate with GVL team members to develop and oversee the company’s product strategy and prioritization, as well as communicate and ensure successful implementation of GVL’s product vision.

"I'm excited to help craft GVL's product strategy and explore additional ways to further leverage the company’s commitment to animal health and safety solutions,” said Keller. “My goal is to ensure that GVL has a world class product team that deeply understands the needs of our customers and collaborates on innovative solutions to improve their lives."
