“I am thrilled to take on this new challenge and grateful for the IPC Board of Directors’ trust," Santin said. "Under Robin Horel’s leadership, IPC has gone from strength to strength, with a wide range of new country and associate members, a diverse staff to support the organization and tangible outcomes in our efforts to engage international organisations and key stakeholders."

“IPC has a clear vision of the future of food systems and the global poultry sector’s role in helping achieve food security across the world. I look forward to working with the IPC community to shape a bright future for our sector," he added.

“The new IPC Executive Committee brings together a wealth of voices, expertise and backgrounds," Griffiths said. "All of us are ready to take the next steps to champion the poultry industry on the global stage and support our members in their efforts to feed the world."

Santin will take the stage to outline the IPC vision and strategy at the IPC Annual Meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in May 2024.
