US - Danisco Animal Nutrition has announced the appointment of two new US-based key account managers.
Andrew Carlson has been appointed to the position of key account manager. Based in Nebraska, Carlson will be responsible for improving the profitability of key accounts within the US poultry industry.
Mr Carlson brings valuable experience and in-depth understanding of the challenges faced by a broiler integrator, having spent the last ten years at Central Coast Farms. He earned an MS-Ag in Economics from Purdue University and an MBA from Indiana University.
Carlson said: "The main challenge is to effectively and profitably deliver food to individuals in an era of increasing commodity costs and competition for resources."
New ruminant key account manager, John O’Neill has joined animal nutrition from his previously held post of operations manager with Danisco. Based in Ponca City, Oklahoma, O’Neill will further support Danisco’s growing portfolio of microbial products throughout the US ruminant industry.
