New general manager appointed for Topigs Norsvin Hellas


Topigs Norsvin announced last July the appointment of Ilias Beneas as general manager for Topigs Norsvin Hellas.


Beneas is currently marketing and sales manager for Zoetis in Greece and the other countries where Topigs Norsvin Hellas is active in. He assumed his new position on August 23. Beneas will take over from George Nicolaou, who has worked for Topigs Norsvin for over 11 years.


Beneas has extensive experience in the pork industry. Before becoming marketing and sales manager for Zoetis, he worked for a feed additives company specialised in pigs. Arno van de Laar, Topigs' regional director of Europe, said: "Ilias knows and understands the market Topigs Norsvin Hellas is active in. This means that in his new role, he will contribute to further developing our company's position in the market.'


"I would like to thank George for leading the successful expansion and development of Topigs Norsvin in Greece and the surrounding countries. Over the past decade, he developed Topigs Norsvin into a clear and strong market leader with a prominent position in the top segment of the industry. I wish him every success for the future and especially hope that his new challenge in Cyprus will become a big success."
