Kemin Industries, a global ingredient manufacturer that strives to sustainably transform the quality of life every day for 80 percent of the world with its products and services, has named Matt Henry, who previously served as Country President – Australia and New Zealand for Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health – Asia Pacific, as the business unit’s Regional Sales Director for Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Indonesia and Korea.
Henry served in his prior position for the past 10 years, overseeing Kemin’s animal nutrition and health business in Australia and New Zealand. During the last decade, Henry tripled sales in Australia, and in 2018, he was the top salesperson for the business unit. Last year, he held the highest sales record and was the winner of the Chairman’s Retreat for 2018 – 2019 – the highest recognition offered to a salesperson at Kemin.
“I am looking forward to taking on this new role at Kemin and expanding my focus to new areas,” said Henry. “I have thoroughly enjoyed building and growing Kemin’s business in Australia and New Zealand over the past 10 years, and I am excited to translate our successes there to other countries in which we operate. I am eager to continue introducing new customers and established partners to the many products and solutions we offer for their animal nutrition and health needs.”
Before joining Kemin, Henry served as General Manager of Merchandise for GrainCorp. Henry studied agricultural economics at the University of New England in Armidale, New South Wales.
Henry will relocate from his native Australia to Singapore, where Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health – Asia Pacific is headquartered.
