Calysta says it has signaled its future intentions with the appointment of Dr Geoff Bryant as its chief technology officer.
Bryant has more than 20 years’ experience in leading R&D and technology teams, most recently as Quorn Foods technical and innovation director. He also spent 16 years working at Mars Inc, where he had several regional and global roles.
Based at Calysta’s UK Technology Hub in Teesside, Bryant will oversee global product development, engineering and innovation activities and the delivery of the company's first production facility for its product, FeedKind. That plant is being built under Calysseo, Calysta’s 50/50 joint venture with Adisseo in China.
And, as part of the executive team, Calysta said Bryant will play an integral role in the company's product development strategy and technology roadmap for Asia, the US and Europe.
