Albion Human Nutrition, premier manufacturer of patented organic mineral amino acid chelates, announced that after 23 years of dedicated service, Mr. Max Motyka will retire from full-time employment with Albion Minerals at the end of 2014. Mr. Motyka’s successor, Mr. Bryan Donaldson, who joined Albion in August, 2014, will serve as director of sales for Albion’s Human Nutrition Division.
“We congratulate Mr. Motyka for his many years of dedicated service with Albion,” said James Hyde, CEO of Albion Minerals. “With his research background, keen market vision and successful leadership, he has contributed significantly in helping Albion continuously drive growth and innovation.”
Through the remainder of 2014, Motyka and Donaldson will continue to work together on specific initiatives. As of Jan. 1, 2015, Mr. Motyka will retire from full-time Albion employment, but will continue to collaborate with Albion on a consulting basis for special projects.
“It has been a pleasure to witness and play a role in the growth of Albion over the years,” said Motyka. “I am happy to have served with a team so dedicated to research, science, and market innovation. With Albion poised for continued growth and success, it is encouraging to know that I am passing the torch of sales director to Mr. Donaldson, a proven, effective sales professional, with a depth of industry knowledge.”
After conducting an extensive national search, Albion is pleased to welcome Bryan Donaldson as director of sales. Donaldson brings to Albion a wealth of experience in the field of sales management, most recently as vice president of sales at True Science. He has served in executive positions with Reckitt Benckiser (formerly Schiff Nutrition International) and Acosta Sales & Marketing, and he holds a master’s degree in Organizational Management.
“Due to Albion’s ongoing commitment to research and quality, its chelated minerals are included in thousands of successful products worldwide, and I am excited to join the Albion team at this exciting time,” said Donaldson. “I look forward to playing a role in the company’s continued success, as we strive to support our sales partners and drive market growth.”
