Nellson Nutraceutical Announces Realignment of Organization - Names Jean Filion, Chief Operating Officer and Bart Child, Senior Vice President of Commercial Development

November 2016

Nellson Nutraceutical, the leading full-service nutrition bar and powder provider in North America, announced a realignment of their organization naming Jean Filion as Chief Operating Officer and Bart Child as Senior Vice President of Commercial Development.

Jamie Better, Nellson’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Over the past two years we have aggressively transformed Nellson, tripling it in size through the acquisitions of MultiBar, as well as the bar and powder operations of NBTY. This reorganization furthers the integration of those strategic initiatives to better serve the needs of our customers by streamlining communication, reducing functional and geographic barriers, and strengthening critical business processes. As President of Nellson Canada, Jean Filion successfully integrated the former MultiBar business with Nellson’s Canadian operations. With the additional role of Chief Operating Officer, Jean now will oversee all Nellson operations and will harmonize our business processes across our West Coast and Canadian footprint.”

Better continued, “Bart Child will take on a new role as Senior Vice President of Commercial Development. This functional group now will include Research and Product Development in addition to Bart’s previous responsibilities for Sales and Marketing. This change will allow us to sharpen our customer focus by tightening product development efforts, accelerating Nellson’s time-to-market for new products, and enhancing collaboration in providing turnkey solutions for our customers.”

“This realignment, along with our recently announced plan to build a new state-of-the-art bar manufacturing facility in Ontario, California to meet the growing demands of our customers, reflect Nellson’s determination to be the co-manufacturing partner of choice for leading brands in the nutritional bar and functional powder marketplace,” stated Better.
