- Animalcare Group has appointed Dr Iain Menneer as managing director of Animalcare Ltd with immediate effect.

Menneer will have strategic and operational management of the commercial activities in the UK.

The group says this change in management of the UK business will allow other senior managers to give greater emphasis to the acceleration of pharmaceutical new product development programme and investment opportunities.

In addition, it will bring greater focus on increasing the penetration of its existing products with development and distribution partners outside the UK.

Menneer joined Animalcare Ltd in December 2003 working in marketing and business development roles, with a particular focus on commercialisation of new products.

He has been head of marketing since July 2009 and director of marketing for Animalcare Group since June 2011, being promoted to the board on 1 July.
