Nick Dorko, global head of veterinary services said: "We are delighted to welcome Zoltán to the Global Veterinary Team. He brings a wealth of high quality expertise to Aviagen and, following a period of induction, will become an important asset to us," said Nick Dorko, Aviagen global head of veterinary services.

Marton has a degree in veterinary science and a Masters in business administration from Budapest University.
