Aviagen appoints new incubation specialist

Aviagen has announced that Guo Jun has been appointed to the role of incubation specialist, supporting customers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Mr Jun replaces Nick French, who moved within Aviagen last April to become head of technical systems.

Mr Jun, who previously spent 15 years with Aviagen in China and Asia, has moved with his family to Edinburgh. He joins Dinah Nicholson, global manager of hatchery development and support, as well as Eddy van Lierde who supports customers in the Americas and the Arbor Acres brand in the Middle East and Africa.

His new role will also involve working closely with staff at Aviagen’s Spelderholt facility in Holland contributing to the incubation trials which will be run there.

The team has a broad remit, including the provision of on-site hatchery support to internal and external customers. However, there is also a strong emphasis on running a programme of incubation trials designed to understand the different lines, improve hatch results and optimise chick performance as well as writing technical documents to help hatchery staff perform essential incubation monitoring.
