Leadership Team

Pearson Ranch Jerky is truly family-owned and operated.  It was founded by Ken Pearson, the great-uncle of Marvin Cromwell, Pearson Ranch Jerky CEO.  His sons, Brandon Cromwell and Matt Cromwell are by his side on a daily basis making our team a success.

Brandon Cromwell

General Manager

Matt Cromwell

National DSD Manager

As Company President, Marvin Cromwell, took over control all aspects of Pearson Ranch’s operations in the early 1990's and was the driving force behind shifting the ranch’s primary focus towards the meat snack industry in 2011. Besides oversight responsibilities for the entire company, Marvin directly manages our Distributor and key Direct Account relationships. Though Marvin would love to spend each and every day on the ranch he adores, you will most likely find him at a trade show or traveling the country spreading the word about Pearson Ranch Jerky.



Brandon Cromwell is our General Manager. Brandon joined the business at the start of 2016 and is responsible for all day-to-day activities of the company’s operations. These include planning, production, sourcing and fulfillment as well as company-wide accounting and administrative activities.



Matt Cromwell is our National DSD Manager. Having started as our first full time sales rep in 2011, Matt now manages our Direct Store Distribution activities.
