People: New general manager for Topigs in Russia

Topigs has announced the appointment of Alexandr Ievlev DVM as general manager of Topigs CIS in Russia with effect from 5 April 2013.

Ievlev (46) has broad experience in the agricultural industry in Russia. Before joining Topigs, he worked in sales and management for an international feedstuff company.

Ievlev said, “I believe that working with Topigs genetics will allow me to have an impact on the result improvement of pork production in Russia. Yet I also see myself and my input as ‘fresh blood’ that will have a ‘heterosis’ effect on the company results on the CIS market.”

Arno van de Laar, regional director of Topigs in Europe states: “Akexandr has a broad experience in management and animal husbandry. With these skills he can further build upon and extend the presence and business of our high-quality genetics in Russia and the surrounding countries”

Topigs CIS is a fast-growing supplier of pig genetics in Russia and has its headquarters in Belgorod. In recent years, Topigs has developed into one of the leading companies in its field.
