Hamlet Protein targeting growth in Asia
Hamlet Protein announced the hiring of new area sales managers in Vietnam and Philippines to support the company's ambition for accelerated growth across the APAC region.
Glenn Ferriol joined Hamlet Protein as Area Sales Manager for Philippines; Malaysia and Indonesia. Mr Ferriol is based in Taguig City (Philippines) and brings with him strong experience in the animal nutrition and animal health industry, having worked at various multi-national companies during his career.
Ferriol said he is thrilled to have joined Hamlet Protein and am ready to support the company towards realizing its' growth ambitions in Asia.
Le Minh Quang was appointed Area Sales Manager for Vietnam and Cambodia. Mr Quang resides in HoChiMinh City (Vietnam). He majored in animal husbandry and veterinary and also completed a MBA degree. He has built a network in the industry during his career at leading multi-national companies in animal nutrition and feed additives.
Quang added that the company's markets are changing towards more sustainable production and AGP free diets and is convinced that Hamlet Protein can really make an impact in Asia and happy to become part of that journey.
Population growth, urbanisation and income growth are drivers for accelerated growth of the feed industry in Asia. Even as several countries have been challenged by African Swine Fever in 2019, but still the future looks bright for the animal feed industry in Asia, with a CAGR of around 5% in the next five years.
Hamlet Protein CEO Erik Visser said in the past two years, the company has invested in its own sales organization in China, headquartered in Qingdao, and can clearly see the impact of being close to our customers with talented industry professionals that fully understand the challenges of the local market. He also said the company feels strongly about the potential for our solutions in Asia and will focus on swine and poultry. Adding local managers in the Asian key markets, supported by regional and global technical experts, will most certainly allow Hamlet Protein to realize further growth in the region.
