Provimi has appointed Koen Uitdehaag as its technical services manager from July1, 2011. Currently based at Provimi's headquarters in Rotterdam, Koen will spend an increasing amount of his time travelling, mainly in Asia and the Middle East.
Koen will be responsible for providing Provimi customers with technical support and advice on poultry nutrition. Educated at Wageningen University, he performed feather pecking behavioural trials as part of his studies.
Prior to joining Provimi he was employed by poultry housing supplier Vencomatic for three years as a technical advisor. In this job, he mainly provided technical on-farm support, both national and international, and assisted in company research and development activities.
"Travelling is an attractive part of my new job," Koen says: "At the moment I am getting up to date with Provimi's portfolio of products and services and their roles in poultry production. I will then be visiting customers and end users within my area."
