Animine bares appointment of 2 new directors



Animine, the French supplier of added-value trace minerals for animal nutrition, is reinforcing its management team with two new appointments: veterinarian Arturo Piñon, as new R&D director and Jennifer Maurin, as new marketing director.


Piñon started his scientific career in 2003 at DSM developing feed additives. Later, he joined Neovia Group in 2011, where he evolved from scientist to R&D director for its Mexican subsidiary Malta Cleyton.


In his new role, Piñon will reinforce the R&D expertise of Animine by defining, in collaboration with the scientific team, new research access for trace minerals and enlarging R&D interactions with marketing and sales teams.


Ms. Maurin, who took over her new position last April, started her career in the feed industry 12 years ago while working for additive manufacturer Pancosma. She covered several positions mainly dealing with strategic marketing and business development for plant extracts products. She will strengthen Animine's position in the industry by coordinating marketing activities.


The company said the two additions to the team are occurring "right on time to support the booming business of HiZox® and CoRouge®, unique sources of zinc and copper, but also to deploy a new and innovative form of manganese".


It said their experiences in Latin American countries "will definitively support the company expansion in the geographic area".
