Lorien Clemens is the co-founder and CEO at PetHub, Inc. She joined PetHub in June of 2011 as the start-up was in its beginning stages. She has guided PetHub to its wins of multiple pet industry awards, including two Dog Fancy Magazine Editors’ Choice Awards, the PetAGE Magazine Retailer Silver Select Award, and two Pet Business Magazine Product of the Year Awards for its unique digital ID tags and online services. Most recently, PetHub was named one of Business Insider Magazine’s 50 Coolest New Businesses in America.

Nestled in the woods outside of the tech-mecca of Seattle, Washington, Lorien lives with a Boston Terrier, two cats and her husband, a true nerd in his own right and 2 year-old son. An avid fan of science fiction and die hard technophile, she loves investigating new, exciting tech trends and all things geeky and pet related.
For PetHub, we deeply value our membership with NACA and the relationships we’ve built there. As we continue to improve our product and build ancillary support products and systems, the connection with the network of animal control officers has been tremendous. They allow us to better understand challenges faced in the field, and explore solutions on how we can help them overcome those challenges. NACA has also been a great resource that helps us keep a pulse on RTH and animal welfare trends, and the content collaborations we’ve had with NACA and their members for lost pet prevention, recovery and emergency preparedness have been awesome!
