Paloma Lazcano has been appointed managing director of Topigs Norsvin Mexico. Lazcano is now chief of staff of Topigs Norsvin Mexico. She takes over with immediate effect from José Córdoba who was managing director for 10 years.

Lazcano has more than eight years of experience at Topigs Norsvin where she was active for the Mexican and international company. She held multiple positions in Mexico and managed several international projects, expanding her knowledge and skills over the years.

"We are proud to continue our growing business of Topigs Norsvin in Mexico with the leadership of Paloma," said Peter van Kemenade, regional director North and South America. "It is a step in the development of our company with the next generation."
