People: AB Vista strengthens China team

AB Vista have appointed three new people to their sales and technical services team to support the company’s recent strong growth in China.

Shi Xuegang will be responsible for sales and technical services to AB Vista distributors and customers in South China, whilst Li Pengfei will perform the same role for North China. The third new member of staff, He Tiantian (Celine), has been employed to support the team on technical and regulatory matters.

A graduate from Gansu Agricultural University, Gansu, with an MSc in animal science, Xuegang joins AB Vista from Du Pont Animal Nutrition. Previous experience includes the delivery of feed enzyme technical support and training to customers and distributors in North China, as well as managing product developing trials.

Pengfei moves from the China Animal Husbandry Group, where he was involved in various aspects of the importation, registration and sale of feed additives. Whilst studying at the China Agriculture University, Beijing, Pengfei undertook a two month internship in the USA as part of the Novus international graduate scholarship scheme.

Celine graduated from Lewis & Clark College, Portland, and was most recently working as a research assistant for the Global Health Centre, Oregon. Previous roles include acting as conference interpreter for Gansu Agricultural University and a laboratory internship at the Langzhou Veterinary Research Institute.

“Strong sales growth in North Asia, and China in particular, is making it an increasingly important region for AB Vista,” states Dr Y.J. Ru, AB Vista’s Technical Sales Director for North Asia. “We’re excited to welcome three new staff to the team, and look forward to working with them to expand sales and technical support in China.”
