Kemin president and CEO Dr. Chris Nelson announces Daryl Schraad is the new president of the company's North American animal nutrition and health division beginning today.

In response to this growth, Jeff Murphy, previous president of the division, transitions to a newly developed role as senior vice president of the commercial ruminant team. Doug Macklin will serve as the director of the commercial monogastric team.
