People: Delacon hires new PR & communications manager

Phytogenic feed additives producer Delacon has expanded its marketing team with Karina Umdasch, 24, as from October 2014.

Her future focus is on internal and external international communication as well as on social media channels. The scientific, technical communication remains the responsibility of Dr Elisabeth Rohrer.

The company’s CEO Markus Dedl explained, “The global Delacon team is growing steadily. To maintain and expand our global leadership, we need highly qualified employees and professional communication. We are therefore pleased to welcome the PR and communications expert Karina Umdasch in our team.”

Umdasch studied communication sciences at the University of Salzburg, Austria. Prior to joining Delacon, she worked for Sirona, a global market and technology company in the dental industry and for the communication agency Rauscher-König, both being located in Salzburg, Austria. In these and other positions, she collected communications experience in environment, education, sports, culture, software, insurance and tax consultancy.

Umdasch comments, “Ecology and sustainability are gaining more and more importance; in livestock production alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters are required. The communication of the pioneer in phytogenic feed additives for farm animals is thus a challenge I am really looking forward to.”
