Roy Mutimer has been appointed managing director of Cobb Europe.
The industry veteran, who has been with Cobb for 25 years has worked for the company in nearly every region around the globe, most recently as vice president of operations. The role will mean he will move from Arkansas to Cobb Europe’s UK base in Essex.
“Roy understands the EMEA market very well and is very passionate about the success of Cobb Europe,” said Pelayo Casanovas, vice president of Cobb-Vantress EMEA and Asia-Pacific. “With his extensive experience across the company, Roy has an impressive track record as a team builder, and his rapport with the existing team is expected to ensure a seamless transition.”
In addition to overseeing the production, sale and technical service of grandparent and parent stock across the EMEA region, Mutimer will also serve in a global capacity on the animal welfare team, working closely with Dr Kate Barger-Weathers, Cobb’s global director of animal welfare.
“We have a bright future with Cobb Europe, and I’m looking forward to supporting our customers across the region,” said Mutimer. “I’m extremely proud to be part of the Cobb EMEA team and look forward to further contributing to this team’s success.”
Mutimer and his family are currently relocating to the United Kingdom from the company’s global headquarters in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, with an expected timeline to be settled by October 2020.
