Nutrition bar and powder provider Nellson Nutraceutical named Jean Filion (above right) as COO and Bart Child (above left) as Senior VP of Commercial Development.
“Over the past two years we have aggressively transformed Nellson, tripling it in size through the acquisitions of MultiBar, as well as the bar and powder operations of NBTY. This reorganization furthers the integration of those strategic initiatives to better serve the needs of our customers by streamlining communication, reducing functional and geographic barriers, and strengthening critical business processes,” said Jamie Better, Nellson’s CEO.
“As President of Nellson Canada, Jean Filion successfully integrated the former MultiBar business with Nellson’s Canadian operations. With the additional role of Chief Operating Officer, Jean now will oversee all Nellson operations and will harmonize our business processes across our West Coast and Canadian footprint.”
“Bart Child will take on a new role as Senior Vice President of Commercial Development. This functional group now will include Research and Product Development in addition to Bart’s previous responsibilities for Sales and Marketing. This change will allow us to sharpen our customer focus by tightening product development efforts, accelerating Nellson’s time-to-market for new products, and enhancing collaboration in providing turnkey solutions for our customers.”
