I am excited to announce a new team member to CCD, José Borsotti. José started with us in January 2021 and is our National Key Account Manager – Poultry.
He was born and raised on a cattle farm in Venezuela, which fuelled his passion for animals. This passion led him to complete a degree in Veterinary Science, and he subsequently furthered his studies in agriculture by gaining his Masters in Agribusiness and Environmental Management. After managing a beef cattle and rice cropping operation for five years, José became as a Regulatory Affairs Manager Assistant for Pfizer Animal Health (now Zoetis).
Since emigrating to Australia in 2009, his experience in agriculture includes work on farms, with Elders Rural Services and in a quality control and process improvement role for Aviagen Australia and Darwalla respectively. He is delighted to be working with Poultry again.
José is based in SA’s Murray Bridge area, where he lives with his wife (also a Venezuelan, who is a teacher for children with learning disabilities) and their two Australian-born, bilingual children. When work and family allows, he enjoys drawing, playing chess and fishing.
Welcome to the team José!
