Dr. Juan Luis Ordaz has joined Cobb-Vantress to be responsible for providing technical support for customers in Mexico and the growing sales base in Central America. Ordaz was previously the live production director for Tyson China.

Together with his family, he moved from Mexico to Shanghai in 2010 to become responsible for helping develop production at the Tyson Nantong Complex. He was involved in all aspects of this expansion, including assembly of live production teams and establishing a contract grower base. Since April 2012, he had been responsible for developing the production infrastructure including feed milling, veterinary and laboratory services, and flock services at the Tyson Nantong, Weifang and Rizhao complexes in China.      

Previously, Ordaz worked for Tyson in Torreon, Mexico, where he began his career in the poultry Industry in 1993 - initially working in sales before becoming a processing plant manager. In 2001, he became breeder manager, which continued up to his move to China.

"Juan has a vast experience from his roles in all facets of the poultry industry in Mexico and then in China," said Ken Semon, technical director for Cobb in North America. "I'm delighted to have him join our team, offering the skills he's acquired in 20 years of service to our rapidly growing customer base throughout Mexico and Central America."
