Debbie Harper has joined Virbac as territory manager for companion animal products in the east midlands.
Miss Harper is a qualified veterinary nurse and an experienced territory manager, having worked with Hill’s Pet Nutrition for seven years.
Before joining Virbac, she worked with a training organisation and was involved in training practice staff in skills such as business management and client care.
She said: “Following my career in nursing and my move into industry, entering the veterinary pharmaceutical market feels like a natural progression.
“By helping veterinary teams to make well-informed clinical choices, I believe I can help more animals – and this is what really excites me about my new role with Virbac.
“I already know many of the practices in my east midlands territory so am looking forward to meeting familiar faces, as well as meeting new teams over the next few months.”
Virbac’s UK sales manager Bryan McCabe said: “Debbie is a huge asset both to both Virbac and to the practices in her territory. We are sure our customers in the east midlands will extend her a warm welcome.”
