Salt Lake City, Utah, April 3, 2017—Cytozyme is pleased to announce the addition of Sophie Gaillardon, Ph.D. as the new Global Regulatory Manager. She will lead the Global Regulatory Department to synchronize and execute regulatory efforts, in conjunction with marketing strategies, for Cytozyme’s Agriculture and Animal Nutrition segments in current and new markets worldwide.
“It is crucial that our regulatory and marketing strategies go hand-in-hand in an ever-evolving agricultural landscape,” said Francisco Manzano, Managing Director of Sales & Marketing. “Dr. Gaillardon’s role will be very important in supporting Cytozyme’s growth plans, as well as ensuring that we stay on top of and respond to regulatory changes.”
Gaillardon joins Cytozyme with impressive knowledge and relevant experience.

Speaking three languages fluently, Gaillardon will be an asset to Cytozyme’s global team and their communication initiatives.
Before joining Cytozyme, Gaillardon worked in Switzerland at one of the world’s largest agricultural companies, Syngenta Crop Protection, as a Global Regulatory Affairs Manager. She worked directly with cross-functional teams to advise business partners on worldwide regulatory strategies and constraints regulated by governmental agencies. She also developed and provided regulatory training across departments.
