Bio

Trent Moffat, is the owner at Gotham Brand Managers LLC, an independent sales, 
marketing and merchandising company for emerging growth snack and beverage brands. 
After spending 20 plus years of experience in beverage sales, operations, manufacturing, 
marketing and finance with global brands such as Nestle and Heineken, he recognized the 
need for an effective and affordable option for new and existing brands in the NY metro 
area. 

Trent began his career in 1992 with the largest US Heineken distributor and quickly 
became a top seller in their organization. After finishing his MBA, he was recruited by 
Nestle Waters in 1999 to manage corporate planning for its Home and Office division 
in Metro NY. In his last position with Nestle, as National Sales Manager for Home and 
Office division, Trent brought in new national business including JP Morgan Chase and 
successfully negotiated million dollar contracts with both the MTA and New York City 
Government offices. Seeking more entrepreneurial challenges in 2005 he discovered his 
first start up, a small juice company for kids based in CT called Waddajuice, co-founded 
by one of the founders of Snapple. Trent and his team quickly grew sales, adding large 
key accounts such as Toys-r-Us, CT Schools, Whole Foods, Fairway, and several key 
distributors. He was also responsible for sales with startup New Leaf Tea, helping drive 
sales in 2 years from $450,000 in 2007 to $4 Million in 2009 until its sale to Baywood 
International, a publicly traded Company in 2009. He subsequently founded Gotham 
Brands in 2010. Trent currently lives in Westchester, NY and is a graduate of Syracuse 
University.
