Wessels and Girod come onboard
Lallemand Animal Nutrition announces the addition of Theunis Wessels, MSc, PAg, and Marie-Claire Girod as Territory Business Managers for Western and Eastern Canada, respectively.
Wessels will focus his efforts in Western Canada, with a strong focus in Alberta and Saskatchewan, strengthening and building sales for the Forage Inoculant and dairy, beef, swine and poultry feed additive portfolios. With more than 10 years in the animal agriculture industry, Wessels brings a vast amount of experience having previously worked in the South African, Australian and Canadian markets.
For the last two years, Wessels worked with a nutrition group as a Sales Marketing & Project Manager, directing his efforts on nutrition for ruminants and monogastric species.
Girod joins the Lallemand team to support and grow the business in Eastern Canada. Previously, Girod worked for a nutrition company as a Territory Business Manager for Eastern Canada, where she concentrated her efforts on ruminant nutrition. Along with supporting the Forage Inoculant portfolio, she will use her strong ruminant background to grow the Direct-Fed Microbial portfolio business.
“Theunis and Marie-Claire are huge assets to our North American team,” says Peter Sook, Eastern Sales Manager. “Their expertise in animal nutrition is going to bring our customers, and the Canadian market in general, even stronger support – we look forward to watching them grow with our team.”
