Former national sales manager – Northern, Brett Hall, becomes national account manager and will be the key contact for Elanco’s distribution partners while supervising Elanco’s intensive team consisting of Ben Parker (dairy and swine) and Lynell Fisher (poultry and feed mill).

Bringing extensive experience and marketing expertise, senior brand manager – sheep, Dr Kathryn Humphries, brand manager – beef, Kim Krilich; and senior brand manager – intensive livestock, Ingrid Gray, will also join the farm animal business unit.
