COLUMBIA - The expansion of Hybro B.V’s international team continues, with the appointment of Dr. Hugo Romero Sánchez as technical manager for Latin America, with effect from August 15, 2006.

Dr. Romero (38),a Colombian National, graduated as Doctor of Philosophy in Poultry Science, with specialisms in Nutrition and Statistics at the North Carolina State University in Raleigh, USA. Since 1995, he has worked in various roles for a number of Universities, including a position as Assistant Professor at the University of Antioquia in Colombia since August 2000, and work as a Research assistant for the department of poultry science at North Carolina State University.

“We are very pleased that Hugo has accepted this important role,” says general manager Richard Maatman. “He is highly qualified for the job, is very well educated and brings with him a wealth of expertise and knowledge in the field of poultry science, which in his role as technical manager will be a great asset to Hybro - and most importantly, of enormous benefit to our customers in Latin America, who will have access to technical service and support of the highest calibre.”

The Central and South American market is an important and growing stronghold for Hybro, as the company targets continuing expansion globally. In August, Dr. Romero received a warm welcome from his new customers and colleagues, during a hosted roadshow to launch the enhanced Hybro PG+ in Colombia. “This is a market Hugo knows and understands very well,” acknowledges Richard Maatman, “and we were delighted with the positive response to news of his appointment.”

During his first year with the Dutch broiler breeding company, Dr. Romero will work out of Hybro’s Boxmeer headquarters in The Netherlands, spending much of his time in the field and coordinating his activities with Hybro’s technical and genetics teams in Holland – and subsequently relocating to Brazil on a permanent basis. In his new function, Dr. Romero will report to Dr. Paulo Martins, Hybro’s area manager in Latin America.

In this Hybro’s 50th anniversary year, Dr. Romero joins a technical team widely acknowledged to be among the best in the sector. By continuing to invest in highly experienced technical personnel, Hybro’s aim is, says Richard Maatman, to broaden the range of technical services and support available to customers locally worldwide, while at the same time furthering the company’s ambitions to become the preferred partner for the poultry meat sector globally.
