Kiotech International, a supplier of natural feed additives for agriculture and aquaculture, has redefined roles and responsibilities at board level.
Richard Edwards, who has been chef executive since November 2006, becomes executive vice-chairman and will be responsible for implementing the company’s acquisition strategy. He will also retain responsibility for Aquatice to ensure continuity of its commercial development.
David Bullen, currently chief operating officer, will become chief executive, responsible for executive management of the Kiotech International Group.
Commenting on the changes, the company’s chairman Richard Rose said. “Following the success of the Optivite acquisition we now consider it appropriate to speed up our acquisition process under Richard Edwards’s guidance. Richard will therefore become executive vice-chairman while David Bullen, will assume the chief executive role as he has played a key role in managing the successful integration of Optivite and has a clear understanding of the combined business.”
