ROAR Organic Welcomes Bart Silvestro As COO & President


Seasoned Leader in Better-for-You CPG Space Joins Organic Beverage Co., Expanding Growth of Brand

ROAR Organic, the 100 percent natural line of vegan, low-calorie, low-sugar electrolyte hydration infusions, announces Bart Silvestro has been hired as COO & President. Silvestro will work in tandem with the brand’s CEO and Founder, Roly Nesi to accelerate growth of the company and add value to the well-established culture. Silvestro’s hiring comes after a recently announced seed investment from AccelFoods, which also furthers ROAR Organic’s mission to grow within the better-for-you beverage space. In his new position, Silvestro will leverage his extensive industry background and resources to manage key relationships with stakeholders, retailers and brand partners as the business grows and scales.

Founded in 2016 by CEO Roly Nesi, ROAR Organic satisfies the demand of those hankering for electrolyte-enhanced hydration, minus the added sugars typically found in sports drinks. Free of gluten, soy, artificial sweeteners and preservatives, ROAR is packed with a punch of electrolytes and vitamins stemming from its coconut water base. ROAR is currently available in six flavors: Strawberry Coconut, Pineapple Mint, Georgia Mint, Cucumber Watermelon, Mango Clementine and Blueberry Acai.

“As ROAR has experienced rapid growth, we recognized we needed a leader with the time-tested ability to scale brands within our space,” said Roly Nesi, CEO and Founder of ROAR Organic. “Bart’s skill set and vision make him the perfect fit for the brand and a fantastic new addition to our team.”

As a seasoned food business professional, Silvestro joins ROAR Organic with notable expertise via his previous position as CEO of Chef’s Cut Real Jerky. At Chef’s Cut, a high-growth, venture-capital backed consumer product brand, Silvestro quickly guided sales from $1M to $47M and grew distribution nationally in just three years. Prior to his time at Chef’s Cut, Silvestro served as the VP of Sales and Operations at Popcorn Indiana, turning the company around from losses of -$27Mto profitability in just one year.

“ROAR Organic has grown immensely since its inception in 2016 and I am thrilled to be joining the team and its visionary founder at this exciting time,” said Bart Silvestro, COO and President of ROAR Organic. “Thanks to Roly’s efforts, this brand is already poised for success and exponential growth. I feel lucky to help further establish an incredible infrastructure and practices that will ensure ROAR reaches its full potential.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
