Ganeden, an international supplier of probiotic ingredients, has promoted Michael Bush to president of the company. Bush is well known throughout the probiotic industry for his expertise and advocacy, leading the field as both executive board president for the International Probiotics Association and as a sought-after speaker and media spokesperson.

Previously Ganeden's senior vice president, Bush's new role will allow him to focus on Ganeden's strategic business development and help manage the company's growth both domestically and internationally. He will also continue to oversee sales and marketing activities, while maintaining his position as a go-to expert source for media quotes, speaking engagements and educational opportunities.

"There are few people in the probiotic space more qualified than Mike Bush, and we couldn't be more pleased to see him take on additional leadership responsibilities as Ganeden's president," said Andy Lefkowitz, CEO of Ganeden. "Mike's expertise has made him an extremely valuable asset not only to Ganeden, but to the entire probiotic industry."

Bush has been with Ganeden for over 10 years, helping to quickly and successfully build the company's reputation as a leading probiotic ingredient manufacturer. Ganeden is best known for its patented probiotic ingredient, GanedenBC30®, which is currently used in more than 500 food, beverage and companion animal products in almost 40 countries and exceeded more than $1 billion in sales in 2015. Prior to joining Ganeden, Bush had more than 20 years of business experience and has won numerous awards for business leadership.

"The culture at Ganeden fully supports my passion for probiotics, science and innovation, and I couldn't be more honored to take on the responsibilities of president as we innovate and delve deeper into the probiotic space," said Bush. "I look forward to sharing Ganeden's mission with the industry, while helping to support the probiotic industry by continuing to work with the media, CPG companies and consumers."
