Huirne Animal Sciences director

Professor Ruud Huirne has been appointed new general director of the Animal Sciences Group by the Executive Board. Huirne replaces Professor Hans de Vries, who will retire at the end of February for health reasons. Huirne plans to concentrate on strengthening the relations between the Animal Sciences Group and key clients. “My predecessor was more internally oriented, and I plan to improve external relations.” Chairman of the Board Aalt Dijkhuizen and Huirne made a tour of the animal sciences locations in Wageningen, Lelystad and Ijmuiden last Tuesday to announce the news.
