- I am very pleased that we have been able to fill the important positions both as head of our activities in the United Kingdom and as head of our Global R&D with very strong internal candidates, and at the same time attract a strong experienced profile for the role as Global Technical Director. It will provide both continuity and a strong focus on further development to the benefit of our customers, commented Carlos Diaz, CEO of the BioMar Group.
Håvard Jørgensen started in BioMar in 2000 and worked until 2006 with feed formulation and product development.

- We have over the last years invested in building a strong global R&D organization, which is a fundamental element in our continued expansion process. We are already now seeing the benefits of this in many of our most important markets with strong and innovative concepts like QARDIO, TRI-X, SYMBIO, and ORBIT entering the markets.

Patrick Campbell is already located in Scotland and he has an in-depth knowledge of the UK market and the very specific requirements of our customers in this market. Combined with his international career in BioMar this give him a solid platform for taking over the position as Managing Director for BioMar UK, said Carlos Diaz.
