Global animal health and nutrition company Alltech has announced the promotion of Patrick Charlton to the position of vice president Europe.

Charlton has been with the company for 21 years, most recently serving as European regional director. He will take the reins from Marc Larousse who has been promoted to the position of Vice President Business Development.

Commenting on the appointment, Alltech founder and president, Dr. Pearse Lyons said, “Alltech is experiencing tremendous progress in Europe. This region has been a vital part of Alltech’s core strategy for many years and now it is time for us to expand. With Patrick’s considerable experience and leadership we are anticipating strong growth and development throughout the Europe region.”

Charlton has worked extensively in Africa, Canada and the Middle East, and was also Global Bioplex Manager responsible for the Bioplex series of organic minerals.

“European agriculture is changing rapidly in response to a growing export market and increased internal regulation and Alltech Europe must grow and expand to keep up with these developments,”  said Charlton. “Together we will further the development of new technologies, while continuing to meet the needs of local customers.”
