DSM on May 3 announced other changes in Nutritional Products segment businesses.

Mr. Bos previously was the interim manager for the Human Nutrition & Health business. Jeremy Xu, Ph.D., who recently joined DSM from DuPont, now will manage Human Nutrition & Health. David Blakemore, who also recently joined DSM from Dow, will lead the Animal Health & Nutrition business. He will replace Mark Stock, who will retire in the fall after a 36-year career.

The leadership moves are part of DSM’s “Driving Profitable Growth” corporate strategy launched in November 2015. The plan said DSM’s nutrition and performance materials businesses offer potential for growth through opportunities in global mega trends.
