Leading specialty chemicals company Perstorp has appointed Jimmy Paulakuhn as Vice President for North and Central America, responsible for the Feed & Food Business Area. Paulakuhn will join Perstorp on November 1 and report directly to Perstorp Feed & Food Executive Vice President Roger Mann.
Perstorp Feed & Food has an ambitious growth strategy in the Americas, which Paulakuhn is an integral part of. “With the reduction of antibiotics higher than ever on the agendas of consumers and companies, we expect the demand from North and Central America for our solutions to grow.
Organic acids and especially our esters of organic acids are a prime candidate to help facilitate this reduction of antibiotics without compromising on performance. A bigger more independent team led by an experienced specialist like Jimmy will make sure we can meet those demands” said Mann.
Paulakuhn has an impressive resume with 25 years of experience in a broad range of business and technical functions in the poultry industry. Past positions include National Sales Director US for Zoetis and VP of live operations at Mountaire Farms.
Paulakuhn will be responsible for achieving Perstorp’s ambitious strategic goals for Feed & Food in North and Central America. He will be responsible for the sales and GTM strategies with Perstorp’s distributors and agents, as well as lead, train and develop Perstorp Feed & Food’s regional sales and technical team.
