Co-Founder, Senior Producer
Craig Spinks is a seasoned video producer who specializes in veterinary video production and emotional marketing. The company he co-founded in 2017, Veteos, has quickly become the go-to resource for veterinary video production. It’s growing staff has worked with numerous veterinary practices and industry partners and has received twelve NAVC Vetty marketing awards, including “Best in Show – Nonprofit” in 2019. Craig lives in Denver, Colorado with his wife, two kids, rescue dog, and backyard chickens.
Ben Spinks, MBA, CVPM
Ben Spinks temporarily (or so he thought) entered the veterinary industry in his current capacity in 2004. He planned on helping a veterinary practice “run some numbers” over the summer to delay his inevitable entry into the corporate world. That one summer stretched longer than he anticipated, and he’s been the Hospital Administrator of Tipp City Veterinary Hospital ever since – now as a co-owner. Always fascinated with Craig’s projects at Quadrid Productions, he jumped at the chance to collaborate with Craig and form Veteos. Outside of his roles with TCVH and Veteos, Ben helps other veterinary hospitals and small businesses run more efficiently (Branchworth Consulting). Ben lives in Tipp City, Ohio with his two doodles, Claire and Finn, and his thoughtful cat, Oscar.

Nick Mathias, DVM
Dr. Nick Mathias graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007, but his roots in veterinary medicine and his connection to both Vetoes co-founders run deeper. Nick comes from a family of veterinarians and co-owns the Tipp City Veterinary Hospital with his father, brother, and Ben Spinks. His first official job in the industry was in the lodging facility at TCVH in 1998, alongside Ben. He first worked with Craig and Quadrid Productions in 2003, the year before entering veterinary school. Nick practiced medicine full time at TCVH until 2015 when he transitioned to a technical services/educational role with an animal health company.
