Our Leadership Team
Pehr Luedtke, Founder
Pehr is the founder of Ranchr and brings to the company 20 years of retail, ecommerce and marketing experience. He has been CEO of two successful venture-backed technology companies (PowerReviews and Spotzot). Pehr also served as an executive at well-known consumer brands such as eBay and Levi Strauss. He has an undergraduate degree from Princeton and a graduate degree in business from Stanford.
Pehr is a passionate Big Green Egghead and is on a quest for the perfect brisket. He bothers his neighbors with wafting mesquite smoke at all hours of the day and night, but his family enjoys the end results. He also comes from a family with roots in the farming business, and is committed to a better and more sustainable food system. Pehr lives in the Bay Area with his wife, two kids, and dog Mike. All of them benefit from Ranchr on a daily basis.
