Building on a reputation of providing exceptional customer support, Cobb-Vantress World Technical Support recently welcomed several new members.

The addition of a dedicated technical content development team brings the total number of experts on the team to 18.
“These additions broaden our ability to provide customers with the latest advice and recommendations in the industry so that they can better maximize the potential of our products,” said Cody Polley, director of world technical support.

New members include:

  • Dr. Nicholas Anthony, content development manager. After 29 years as a poultry breeding and genetics professor at the University of Arkansas’ Center of Excellence for Poultry Science, Anthony joined Cobb in June. He completed his education at Ohio State University and Virginia Tech University.
  • Dr. Irene Hanning, senior manager of technical content. Hanning is new to the Cobb team, most recently working as a faculty member at the University of Tennessee and the University of Arkansas and as an editor and publisher of the journal Concise Contributions to Biology. Hanning received her bachelor’s degree at Texas A&M University and her doctorate from the University of Arkansas.
  • Alice Guo, senior data scientist. Guo, a Cobb team member since 2015, was promoted from her previous role as data analyst and trial coordinator for the Asia-Pacific region. She is a graduate of Qingdao University of Science and Technology in China.

Polley said Anthony, Hanning and Guo will gather and analyze the latest data from Cobb products and trials and then share that information through a host of customer materials including product guides, technical articles and research papers.
