We are already now seeing the benefits of this in many of our most important markets with strong and innovative concepts like QARDIO, TRI-X, SYMBIO, and ORBIT entering the markets. Håvard Jørgensen will, with his strong management and R&D background, be able to continue that process," said Carlos Diaz.

Patrick Campbell has been with BioMar since 1998. Since 2011 he has been Global R&D Director for BioMar and has taken the lead in establishing a Global R&D team.

"We are very pleased that Patrick Campbell has accepted the challenge to continue the successful work of Guy Mace as Managing Director in Scotland. Patrick Campbell is already located in Scotland and he has an in-depth knowledge of the UK market and the very specific requirements of our customers in this market. Combined with his international career in BioMar this give him a solid platform for taking over the position as Managing Director for BioMar UK," said Carlos Diaz.
