KELLY BOTTENFIELD

When Kelly Bottenfield was younger, she was always fascinated by how companies built lasting relationships with their consumers. A graduate of Penn State University with a degree in Industrial-Organizational Psychology and Business, her career in CPG began as the Director of Marketing at Whole Foods Market’s then-flagship store in Boulder, CO. From there, she had the opportunity to move into a position as a National Sales Development Manager at Allegro Coffee, followed by time spent as a Regional Sales Manager at the snack-based powerhouse Food Should Taste Good as well as a position as the Director of Sales at Spindrift Beverage Company. However, it was her position as the Senior Sales Manager at Rhythm Super Foods LLC. that would provide an opportunity that would have a lasting impression on her life and career.

Overloaded by Rhythm’s growing popularity, Kelly found herself hiring for the position of Southeast Area Sales Manager. It was at that time that she received an application from a young up-and-coming entrepreneur named Beatrice Dixon. Not only was Beatrice perfect for the position, but Kelly was impressed by the fact that ‘Bea’ was also laying the foundation for her own brand; the Honey Pot Company, a plant-derived intimate care line with the goal of providing consumers with “better for you” and innovative vaginal wellness products. Kelly was blown away; herself passionate about equal rights, empowerment and access to all-things health, Kelly and Bea became fast-friends as well as a powerful business partnership. When The Honey Pot Company got their initial product line into a national retailer their lives, and careers, were about to change forever.   

Now, as the Chief Sales Officer at the Honey Pot Company, Kelly uses her 24+ years of experience in the CPG and personal wellness industry to focus on her passion for innovating and improving the world of intimate care. Together with Bea and the rest of the expanding Honey Pot team and their growing number of partners around the world, their incredible life-changing work continues…
