A further two new veterinary technical advisors – Anya Thurgood BVM&S MRCVS and James Walker MAVetMB MRCVS – join the existing technical services team to provide veterinary and pharmacovigilance support. Both Anya, an Edinburgh graduate and James, a Cambridge graduate are from small animal practice and bring with them an active interest in feline medicine and endocrinology.
Bob Parmenter, managing director at Dechra says: “Our new veterinary technical advisors will bring a fresh approach to the team having come straight from a practice environment. Their particular areas of expertise within animal health will strengthen our support for customers and communication with small animal and equine practices.
The expansion of the sales team has bought three new team members with backgrounds in human pharmaceuticals, government and the veterinary industry. Mechell Di Matteo will be responsible for South Midlands; Maggie Cronnie will be managing North England; and Jessica Howett takes up her post at East Anglia. “Mechell, Maggie and Jessica’s appointments fortify our sales team and ensure we have nationwide representation for our growing portfolio of first-class products,” adds Bob Parmenter.
