In that role, he will provide support related to specialty ingredient, nutrition and premix sales for the company’s commercial poultry customers. Additionally, Matie George has returned to Ridley Feed Ingredients, which is part of the Alltech family of companies, as a formulation and pricing specialist. George will provide support in the area of complete feed formulations for Ridley’s poultry customers.

“We are delighted to welcome Keith and Matie to our U.S. poultry team,” said Curtis Novak, general manager of Alltech U.S. poultry. “Their experience and knowledge will enable our poultry team to deliver even more value for our customers.”

Fleetwood has extensive experience working in the poultry industry.
