OUR TEAM

CHAD BROWN & ROBYN MARKLAND – OWNERS

Business partners since 1993, Chad Brown and Robyn Markland make a formidable team with skills and personalities that complement each other well.  They met while attending school at the University of Colorado where Chad played football and Robyn worked at a CD store.  Eventually, Robyn began managing Chad’s growing business, Pro Exotics Reptiles, while Chad traveled during his college and professional football years. Together, they built it up into one of the premier reptile facilities in the US.

In 2009, they launched a shipping company that included ShipYourAquatics, opening a world of safe, legitimate, and affordable shipping for hobbyists and professionals across the country. 

Due to a tragic fire in 2011 that destroyed the Pro Exotics facilities, Robyn and Chad have stepped away from breeding live animals and set their full attention on service and information.  They now run three separate companies: All Pro Shipping (the parent company of ShipYourReptiles & ShipYourAquatics), The Reptile Report, and THG Heat.

Chad and his wife, Kristin, make their home in Denver, Colorado, with two golden doodles named Charlie Brown and Snoopy Brown.  Throughout the fall and winter football season, Chad is a broadcaster for both NFL and college ball, working almost every weekend in both television and radio.  With so much going on, he has little time for hobbies, but when given the chance will indulge in body surfing, mountain biking, and great food. 

Robyn and his wife, Nicci, adopted an adorable pair of dogs from a local shelter.  Robyn loves doing CrossFit, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and mountain biking.  He also travels a lot for both work and pleasure and is always on the look-out for the world’s best sushi. 

 

JORDEN PERRETT – PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR

Actively field herping since he was 8, and having kept and bred many species since the mid 80s, Jorden is passionate about working with reptiles, especially in the field. His photography has been published in several books and after 15 years of a sales management career, he shifted focus to web & application development as well as marketing & graphic design which he had been doing on the side since the birth of the Web in the mid-90s. Now he can combine his experience in development with his passion for everything reptile. There are big things brewing and Jorden is thrilled to be a part of it.

 

JUDY CLOTHIER – DIRECTOR OF ACCOUNTS

Judy first came to work for Chad and Robyn helping to build The Reptile Report and managed it as Editor in Chief for its first three years.  Since then, she’s moved over into their shipping world and taken on the task of managing the thousands of accounts at All Pro Shipping, including ShipYourAquatics.  

She currently keeps a handful of reptiles and has a small reef aquarium, as well as a Doberman pinscher to watch over them all.  Happily married to an Air Force officer, frequent cross-country moves are a way of life and Judy is blessed to be able to work remotely from her home office. 

 

AJ RIEDEL – CUSTOMER SERVICE REP

AJ hails from over the Atlantic, and has lived in Colorado since she was 4 years old. In her free time, she likes to hang out with her daughter, who loves all things pink and sparkly, especially when it pertains to dinosaurs and zombies. They share their home with two cats named Twiggy and Bear, a black German Shepherd/Labrador mix aptly named Loki, and a betta fish named Mr. Bluefish Turquoisen (the second). AJ loves reptiles, but does not own any—yet.

AJ likes to paint, or more accurately, make a very colorful mess, and has on more than one occasion accidentally set fire to her studio in the pursuit of new masterpieces. When not actively attempting to burn her home down, she likes to read dystopian novels to prepare her for the future.

AJ is currently in school studying Information Technology and has high hopes that she might one day rule the world, if she doesn’t accidentally break the Internet first.
