Global Poultry Director at Alltech
In 2001 I started working with Alltech in Brazil, a leading agricultural biotechnology company specializing in natural animal nutrition products. In 2007 I achieved the position of Allzyme series Global Champion with overall responsibility of Sales, Marketing and Strategic planning for the enzyme line of products for Alltech. After 4 years with focus in Latin America, North America, Africa-Middle East, Europe and Asia, we were able to achieve a 5-fold increase in sales, with high market share in many important animal protein producer countries. In 2011, I was promoted as the Global Poultry director of Alltech.
My aspiration is to continue driving Alltech’s business developments in the poultry area and expand my leadership and strategic skills to help better develop the individuals on my team.
