Artemis International, the Berryceuticals specialist, has named Leslie Gallo president of the company.
Jan Mills, founder of the company, will remain as Chairman and CEO.
Gallo, who has been an executive at Artemis International since 2004, was previously vice president of operations. Over her 15 years with the company, she has had hands-on management responsibility for all facets of the business including finance, key account development, product line expansion, global sourcing, marketing, research, and day to day operations of the company. She has been deeply involved in identifying the extraction and drying technologies required to produce the finest, most trusted flavonoid-rich ingredients in the dietary supplement and functional food and beverage marketplace.
Gallo said, “Artemis International is a leader in berry-based phytonutrient ingredients under our Berryceuticals brand. We will continue to innovate, research, strengthen, and expand our branded line-up of flavonoid-rich ingredients to take advantage of the growth opportunities we see ahead of us. We will also be evaluating and potentially pursuing a more active entry into the food and beverage phytonutrient ingredient arena to complement our long-standing focus on the dietary supplement market.”
