Cobb Europe has announced a team restructuring to support the continued growth plans of the company’s regional operations. Devin Stuart and John Vincent will take on new positions in the company focusing on providing veterinary services to customers and internal production and business development for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, respectively.
- Devin Stuart has been promoted to senior regional manager quality assurance and veterinary services, reporting to Gene Shepherd, managing director of world quality assurance and veterinary services. Stuart joined Cobb in 2017 as part of the quality assurance team responsible for Cobb facilities in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Ireland. This recent strategic move recognizes Stuart’s strength in providing expert animal health support across Cobb’s entire European production base.
- John Vincent moves into the new role of director of business development. In this role, Vincent will focus on data analytics and product management efforts, spearheading projects that support development and grow Cobb Europe. Vincent has been a Cobb team member for over 36 years and has worked in a variety of roles, including research and development, production, and technical services. He will continue to report to Mark Sams, general manager of Cobb Europe.
“We have ambitious plans for our business,” said Sams. “These appointments continue the development strategy of our team and pave the way to support and grow our business throughout the region.”
Over the past five years, the EMEA quality assurance team has grown to provide comprehensive support in animal health, laboratory diagnostics, biosecurity, animal welfare and product quality standards. Together, these components create a robust quality system for Cobb to support customers at every level of the supply chain, as well as continue to aggressively drive continuous improvement of our internal standards.
