CLEAN CAUSE NAMES VETERAN CPG INVESTOR FROM CAVU VENTURE PARTNERS AS CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER.
Austin, TX – March 4, 2021 – CLEAN Cause, the high-growth sparkling yerba mate beverage company with the mission to empower individuals and those in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction by creating a sustainable source of funding for recovery efforts, announced today that it has named Todd Bondy, former Vice President at CAVU Venture Partners, as Chief Financial Officer.
Based in Austin, Texas, CLEAN Cause was founded by CEO Wes Hurt, a serial entrepreneur and person in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Hurt formed the sparkling yerba mate beverage company with the purpose of activating 50% of profits to fund sober living scholarships that empower individuals to establish their recovery routines, find employment & pursue a life free from addiction. CLEAN Cause’s innovative business model has allowed it to grant over 1,960 sober living scholarships representing more than $980,000.
After recruiting Red Bull veteran Chad Peffer as President and Chief Commercial Officer of CLEAN Cause in October 2020, Hurt is excited to add Bondy to its Leadership Team. Bondy’s decade plus of experience investing in, partnering with and successfully scaling differentiated consumer brands brings a versatile skillset to the CLEAN Cause team. Bondy has served on the board of directors for several high-growth consumer packaged goods companies including Kite Hill, Nulo Pet Food, Good Culture, and Kettle & Fire. He has also worked as an investment professional at consumer-focused investment firm Lion Capital and investment banker at Evercore Partners. As CFO of CLEAN Cause, Bondy will lead the organization’s finance, accounting, and supply chain verticals while helping steward the brand through its next phase of growth and maximizing the Company’s bottom line – all to support its mission.
“I have had the great fortune of helping scale several innovative brands in food and beverage, but CLEAN Cause is inspiringly unique and has the utmost potential to grow and positively impact lives. I was initially drawn to and believed in its potential as an avid fan of the product, and after learning more about the brand and the company’s mission, I knew that I had to get involved in a meaningful way,” said Bondy.
Bondy joins CLEAN Cause as it continues its triple-digit growth trajectory and prepares for its Series B round of financing. The brand is currently available in over 10,000 physical retail doors, Amazon.com & its own website, CLEANcause.com.
