EW Nutrition hires executive vice president
EW Nutrition USA has named Rafael Cabrera, Ph.D., as executive vice president.
To further accelerate the company's growth, Cabrera will oversee the company's sales and technical teams.
Cabrera is a senior technical and sales executive with more than 25 years of experience in animal nutrition and strategic business development, focused on value-added technologies to enhance the profitability of livestock and poultry producers. He holds a Ph.D. in animal nutrition from North Carolina State University. Prior to joining EW, Cabrera was director of the swine business unit at Huvepharma.
"Dr. Cabrera will also be instrumental in further development of the company's innovative antibiotic-free programmes for all animal species," said Mark Richards, president of EW Nutrition USA.
"EW Nutrition is strongly committed to helping reduce and eliminate antibiotic use in dairy, livestock and poultry production, which is one of the most critical issues facing our industry today," Richards added. "While EW already offers valuable solutions to antibiotic-free production, Dr. Cabrera's superior knowledge of US livestock and poultry operations will be a huge asset to the company and our customers as we continue to grow and move forward."
