He has a technical background in both monogastric and ruminant nutrition and previously worked with Ajinomoto, where he was technical manager for its Brazilian operation. Prior to that, Sá was a nutrition and formulation manager for Poli-Nutri Alimentos, a major feed and premix producer in Brazil.
Sá will focus on providing technical and commercial support on the ground. Sá is the lead author of more than 10 published papers and has published articles in scientific magazines. He has also been a regular speaker at industry conferences.
Rene Noteborn has joined Kiotechagil as regional sales manager for Europe. Noteborn is based in Holland and will report to Mike Corbett, managing director of the International Division.
