MariCal, an animal health and nutrition biotechnology company based in Portland, Maine, has named Bruce Andrews as its new chief executive officer.
Andrews is a former president and CEO of Alpharma Inc.’s Animal Health Division, a global manufacturer and marketer of pharmaceutical and feed additive products for livestock, poultry and fish.
“I look forward to assisting MariCal in the pursuit of successful performance enhancement, prophylactic and therapeutic technology applications based on the company’s novel CaSR [Calcium Sensing Receptor] platform technology,” Andrews said. “MariCal has the potential to develop a number of products for both food producing and companion animal species worldwide.”
Steven Morrell, a senior partner of Teknoinvest, a Norway-based venture capital company and shareholder in MariCal, is stepping down from his CEO post to dedicate more time to MariCal’s subsidiary businesses in commercial aquaculture production.
