Stefan Hirtenlehner has been appointed as Technical Communications Manager at Delacon. Hirtenlehner’s responsibilities include the organization, planning and coordination of all scientific, technical and product-related communication activities.

"In his function, Dr. Hirtenlehner is the link between product management, R & D and marketing as well as communications,” explains Martin Broetel, head of Marketing. “He closes the gap of scientific know-how transfer of our products from internal departments to external stakeholders, such as distributors, customers, partners and specialist media.”

Prior to joining Delacon, Hirtenlehner worked as a program manager at Business Upper Austria GmbH. Previously, he worked as a research assistant in the field of physiological fundamental research at the Institute of Zoology at the Karl Franzens University of Graz, Austria. He has a PhD in biology and a Master’s degree in zoology.

Hirtenlehner said, “I’m deeply inspired by the idea of channeling the power of nature into products, from which humans, animals and the environment will benefit in equal shares. My job involves the presentation of scientific data in a comprehensible way to demonstrate the advantages of phytogenic feed additives for our stakeholders.” Delacon is a producer of plant-derived feed additives, so-called phytogenic feed additives, for poultry, swine and ruminants.
