Aiming for a $4 Billion Target: Alltech Realigns Leadership Team

[Lexington, KY] – In its quest to reach $4 billion in revenue, global animal health and nutrition company Alltech is realigning its directorship to take strategic advantage of emerging opportunities. Dr. Mark Lyons has been named vice president of corporate affairs and Geoff Frank has been appointed to manager of North American sales.

“Alltech has experienced a remarkable growth in the past couple of years,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “The opportunities are ripe and abundant, and consequently I’ve asked several key members of our directorship to assume new areas of focus. We are moving away from ‘business as usual’ to the business of the future Alltech, an Alltech that sees $4 billion as a viable achievement within the next few years.”

Fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, French and German, Dr. Mark Lyons will be concentrating on key international accounts and industry groups as well as core company initiatives. Under his leadership as director of North America, Alltech expanded its presence in all agricultural sectors with the opening of new offices.

Dr. Mark Lyons had previously served as director of international projects, overseeing projects and operations at Alltech’s solid state fermentation plant in Serdan, Mexico, and its flagship yeast production facility in São Pedro, Brazil.

Alltech’s new sales manager of North America, Geoff Frank, has more than 40 years of experience in agriculture and livestock businesses. Frank began working with Alltech in 1992 as chairman of Alltech’s distribution in South Africa, his native country. Since that time, he has held a number of directorship roles including that of CEO of Improcrop, an agronomy subsidiary of Alltech.

Considered one of the world’s top ten animal health companies, Alltech continues to grow at 20% or more each year, and now employs 2,650 team members in 128 countries.
