Pfizer Animal Health, the largest animal health pharmaceutical company in the UK, has announced two new senior appointments in its UK and Ireland pig and poultry business unit.
Alan Doyle has become director of the unit and James Walton key account manager.
Doyle, a qualified veterinary surgeon, has worked for SmithKline Beecham and then Pfizer since 1991 initially in veterinary advisory roles, becoming national veterinary sales manager, sales director for companion animals and most recently division director for Ireland.
Walton first worked for Pfizer in medical sales, moving to the animal health sector in 1997 with Smith & Nephew and for the past two years with Janssen. In January, he joined Pfizer as territory manager for the North West and Northern Ireland.
During the summer Pfizer strengthened its pig and poultry team further with the appointment of veterinary surgeon David Roberts as veterinary relations manager and Freddie French as one of the two key account managers.
Emmeline Randall joined the team earlier as product manager having six years’ experience in project and product manager roles in the animal health sector, joining Pfizer in 2004.
