Benchmark Genetics appointed Balachandar Jayaraman (Bala) as sales technical manager to oversee sales and technical support in India and neighboring countries.
Coming from the Waterbase Limited before joining Benchmark, Balachandar held several positions of responsibility in commercial coordination and technical functions. He has a vast commercial and technical network, built through his over 28 years of experience in the shrimp culture business in India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Bala’s experience, along with his expertise in shrimp larviculture, maturation, nursery, grow-out, and broodstock multiplication operations will be used to best serve the interests and needs of Benchmark’s current and future customers.
“With the emergence of new challenges in aquaculture, the solution must come from genetics, nutrition, and the environment. Breeding with genomic precision, providing advanced nutrition and environmentally friendly health products, sets us apart and I am proud to be part of this team that sets new Benchmarks for the industry,” said Bala.
“We are very happy to welcome Balachandar to the team,” said Oscar Hennig, operations director of Benchmark Genetics Shrimp. “We are convinced that Bala’s knowledge, expertise, and skills, both in the commercial and technical field, will contribute to the success of Benchmark and its customers in the region.”
