E.T. Horn Names FoodTech Leader

July 14/Chemical & Chemistry -- The E.T. Horn Company, a distributor, supplier, marketer and manufacturer of specialty ingredients, selected Jim Berg to lead the company's FoodTech Group. Berg has been employed by E.T. Horn for the past seven years and brings to his new position an impressive resume of food industry experience.

The E.T. Horn Company's recent expansion into the Animal Wellness industry has resulted in the creation of a new sales group to be led by Lisa Alley-Zarkades, Berg's predecessor.

Most recently E.T. Horn's vice president of Hydrocolloids, Berg's resume includes several senior positions within the food industry, including successful stints at Hercules, New Zealand Milk Products, and Danisco/Cultor.

Alley-Zarkades, a 20+-year employee of E.T. Horn, transitions from vice president of Sales FoodTech to vice president of Sales Animal Wellness based on her unique experience and aptitude in both of those closely connected industries. She and Berg envision a very closely cooperative relationship between their groups -- one designed to maximize the effectiveness of targeted technical sales representation -- a distinct cornerstone of the E.T. Horn business model.
