New general manager appointed for Topigs Norsvin Portugal



Topigs Norsvin announced last July the appointment of Francisco Sepúlveda as general manager for Topigs Norsvin Portugal.


He will also be key account coordinator for Topigs Norsvin Espanã. Sepúlveda is currently the key account manager and director of swine division for an animal health company in Portugal.


He will officially assume his new position this month. He will take over from Gonçalo Pimpao, who has worked for Topigs Norsvin for over 17 years.


Sepúlveda has extensive experience in the pork industry and pork genetics, and previously worked with Topigs.


Arno van de Laar, Topigs' regional director Europe, said: "Francisco knows and understands the market in Portugal and his knowledge of Topigs Norsvin and genetics make him the perfect manager to further developing our company's position in the market. I am happy he is back in our company.''


"I would like to thank Gonçalo for leading the successful expansion and development of Topigs Norsvin in Portugal and the great work he did with the sales team in Spain. In both positions, he initiated and contributed to the success in the market. I wish him all the best for the future."
