Jaime Mendal is a 17 year resident of the Town of Golden Beach, having moved here with his family at the age of 12. Elected in February 2017, Mr. Mendal is believed to be the youngest councilmember in Golden Beach history.

            After graduating from Tufts University in 2012 with a degree in International Relations, Mr. Mendal joined his family’s business in the pet industry. In his role, he oversaw the manufacturing facilities in Central and South America for the world’s largest, vertically integrated rawhide dog treat company.

            In 2016, Mr. Mendal branched off to start Crafted Kibble. Crafted Kibble is an online subscription-based, pet nutrition product delivery platform. The company produces pre-portioned and pre-packaged high-quality customized kibble based on an individual dog’s unique nutritional needs. Through proprietary dietary and portioning algorithms, Crafted Kibble strives to improve the wellness of the U.S. pet population and enhance the bond between the family and their pet.

            Mr. Mendal has eagerly put the skills he has learned in the private sector to work on behalf of the residents of Golden Beach. He looks forward to continue working with the other members of the Town Council as well as with Town staff.
