Top animal health executive joins Simcro Board


Former Merial VP adds international experience to aid market expansion

HAMILTON, NEW ZEALAND: Simcro has appointed a top animal health executive, Dr. Jorge E. Solé, to its Board.

Dr Solé has worked for more than 30 years in the animal health and crop protection chemical markets, where he has gained extensive experience in global business operations and mergers and acquisitions.

His most recent position in the animal health industry was vice-president of International Business Operations for leading animal health company, Merial, where he was responsible for the Asia, Latin America, Canada and Oceania markets.

“We’re pleased to welcome Dr Solé onto the Board. We plan to double the size of the company over the next three years and to expand our export markets,” says Simcro chief executive, Will Rouse.

He was head of global marketing for the ruminant franchise and head of companion animal business for the international region based in Merial’s global headquarters in the USA.

Dr Solé received his doctorate in veterinary medicine from the Buenos Aires University, Argentina. He is fluent in Spanish, English, and Portuguese. He is a native of Argentina and currently resides in the USA and Uruguay.
