Hubbard, one of the major international broiler breeding companies in the world, has announced the appointment of Mathieu Lardière as technical manager for Europe, Middle East and North Africa (EMEA) region
With a family background in the poultry business, Mathieu quickly got involved in many poultry related activities such as genetics, breeding, nutrition, primary and secondary processing throughout his seasonal work, internships and studies, said the company.
He obtained his degree as agricultural engineer with a specialisation in animal production at ESA in Angers in 2011, after two years of preparatory classes in biology. Mathieu joined Hubbard’s customer technical service in July 2012, allowing him to give his passion for poultry farming an international dimension.
Mathieu has provided technical support to Hubbard customers in the EMEA region at GP and PS level. In the meantime, he has successfully managed internal projects, such as setting up of a Hubbard Parent Stock trial farm. He also gradually has taken over from Michel Clech, who retired early 2017, supporting Hubbard customers and preparing technical literature and product performance summaries.
In his new role, Mathieu will lead and coordinate all the technical support in the EMEA region, and will ensure the reinforcement of technical exchanges with the other Hubbard regional entities. He nevertheless retains the technical follow-up of Hubbard customers who remain at the heart of his commitments.
Bruno Briand, sales director at Hubbard for EMEA, commented, “We are very pleased to welcome Mathieu with his new role into the EMEA team and to further reinforce our customer support using his excellent skills.”
From the small flock of chickens with which Ira and Oliver Hubbard began the business in 1921, Hubbard has grown to one of the major international broiler breeding companies in the world. The poultry industry has seen remarkable changes during the past 90 years, with dramatic results for the benefit of humankind. The company focuses on playing a vital role in poultry industry across the world.
