Virbac has appointed vet Sarah Walker as product manager, to be responsible for the development and marketing of its key ranges, including its reproduction portfolio, anaesthetics, non-steroidals and veterinary shampoos.
Sarah qualified from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh and spent nine years in first mixed, then equine practice before joining Virbac.
Her new role will see her manage the development of Virbac’s ranges with a particular focus on developing innovative marketing strategies that support practices in building client loyalty.
Sarah said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my time in practice but I was looking for a new challenge and am excited at the opportunity of moving into product management with Virbac.”
Simon Boulton, marketing manager for small Animals, said: “Sarah is a welcome addition to our growing marketing team and her recent practice experience will be invaluable in helping us raise awareness and understanding of the range of products and support services we offer to practices in the UK.”
