BENICIA, Calif., January 23, 2007 -- InterHealth Nutraceuticals has announced the hiring of Fiona Taylor as Marketing Director for the company. In this position Taylor will be responsible for the management of the marketing department and its support of the company’s key products.
Taylor comes to InterHealth with more than 15 years of experience both in marketing and in research and development, including several years managing the launch of new product lines. Most recently she worked for DMV International, where she led international project teams working on immune health products. Prior to DMV, Taylor worked as a senior scientist for Procter and Gamble, where she directed the consumer support efforts of the first major project launch of a newly acquired brand.
Taylor’s appointment coincides with InterHealth’s growth both in the U.S. and internationally, and with its expansion into new applications for existing products. The company has increased its presence in several parts of the world, most notably in Asia, and has, after almost 20 years in the human dietary supplement industry, expanded its ingredients’ applications to include functional foods and beverages and the animal supplement and food market. Super CitriMax®, InterHealth’s patented weight-management product that has been clinically proven safe and effective, is highly soluble and has no color, taste or odor, making it an ideal choice for use in a wide variety of beverages and foods. UC-II®, the company’s patented bone and joint health product, has been shown both in humans and in arthritic dogs to reduce pain and promote mobility.
“We’re extremely pleased to have Fiona on board,” said Paul Dijkstra, executive vice president for InterHealth. “Her background as both a marketing professional and a scientist is a perfect fit for our company, which is known for its strong reliance on high-quality scientific research. Given Fiona’s track record for leading successful cross-team efforts, and our already strong research and development, sales and marketing teams, I believe we have a winning formula for meeting the evolving needs of our customers and today’s consumers,” Dijkstra added.
