Garratt will lead all brand strategy, marketing and sales initiatives, and work closely with Founder Dr. Stacy Sims, to enhance and accelerate product development efforts towards moving the highly innovative brand into the daily lives of active and healthy adults and children.

Dr. Sims is equally excited about the working relationship with Garratt.

Dr. Sims, who earned her PhD from Stanford University, is behind the emerging science that is driving new performance hydration trends, causing athletes and active individuals to rethink their sports nutrition strategies.

Following the hugely successful launch of the first ever line of sports nutrition formulated specifically for Women, Osmo continued to innovate and please parents with the launch of Osmo for Kids, the first hydration drink formulated specifically for kids.
