Fraser Hodgson is to head the animal health company’s growing large animal team, leading the introduction of new products and services for its ruminant, pigs, poultry and equine customers.

Before moving to Virbac in 2014, Mr Hodgson held a range of senior sales and marketing roles in the animal and human health sectors in New Zealand and Ireland.

Despite the promotion, he will retain his current role of commercial manager and report to Virbac managing director David Ellerton.

New products

Mr Hodgson said: “It’s been an exciting few months for the large animal team with a number of product introductions made and more on the way.

“I’m looking forward to helping the team maximise the potential of these products and our existing range, and to develop new products and service opportunities to meet our customers’ needs.”

Mr Ellerton said: “Fraser has made a great contribution to Virbac since he joined us and his experience and knowledge of the large animal sector makes him ideally placed to lead our large animal business unit as it continues to grow.

“We are delighted to welcome him to this new role.”
