New Hypor Managing Director Brings Wealth of Experience

If it’s true that experience is the best teacher, the new Managing Director of Hendrix Genetics’ Business Unit Swine (Hypor) goes to the head of the class. Following the appointment that Raf Beeren becomes Managing Director of Hendrix Genetics’ Business Unit Turkeys, Hypor is pleased to appoint Luis Prieto Garcia as Managing Director of the Business Unit Swine. 

Prieto will report to Hendrix Genetics CEO Antoon van den Berg beginning January 1, 2018. After almost two decades working in various capacities for Hypor in Spain, Mexico and Canada, Prieto brings a wealth of experience in business and management to his new position. In 2012 Luis was appointed General Manager Americas and member of the management team of Hendrix Genetics Business Unit Swine.
