The global leader in plant-based feed (phytogenic) additives, Delacon, exports to 50 countries and the worldwide team is constantly growing. To strengthen the operations in the U.S., Delacon appoints Sonny Pusey as Regional Manager North America. He takes over the Delacon leadership in the U.S. and in Canada.
“Over 20 percent of the piglets in the U.S. is fed with a Delacon phytogenic additive, but the U.S. market offers much more potential for phytogenic feed additives, not only in the swine area but also in poultry and ruminants. Due to the imminent ban of antibiotic growth promoters, feed companies, integrators and farmers are looking for alternatives and are highly interested in phytogenics,” declares Stéphane Jolain, Director of Global Sales and Marketing for Delacon. “In order to provide best support for our partners and customers on-site, we decided to strengthen our Delacon team by hiring a highly experienced sales expert based in the U.S., Sonny Pusey.”
Located in Indiana, Pusey will be responsible for Sales in the U.S. and Canada. His mission is to further develop the sales strategy in the U.S. and in Canada. ”Our intension is to develop strong business partners who will promote Delacon’s products as an alternative to antibiotic growth promoters in the near future”, explains Sonny and continues: “My business view has always been oriented to help and support the commercial livestock producers by providing them my honest advice and the nutritional tools to improve their business. With Delacon’s phytogenic products, I am confident I will be providing livestock producers with research proven alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters.”
Pusey has worked for Purina Animal Nutrition for the past 35 years occupying various sales and management positions. Recently, he was in charge of the business development for the National Swine and Poultry Sales team.
