With an established reputation as the global leader of Vitamin K2 research and development, NattoPharma ASA has seen the supplement and food industry respond with increased interest in its clinically validated and patented MenaQ7® Vitamin K2 as MK-7. In line with the company’s efforts to increase its global commercial activites, NattoPharma is pleased to announce the addition of Collene Villalobos, a talented industry veteran, to its Sales Team.

Villalobos later served as Logistics and Procurement Manager directing products from ingredient to finished goods to retail fulfillment.  She was then promoted to manage the Ingredient Sales team, where she served the companies’ sales needs for several years.

“Collene has demonstrated success in ingredient validation and sales, thanks greatly to her technical understanding. She is an excllent addition to our growing Sales team. With both current and new customers, Collene is well-positioned to communicate the compelling science behind our MenaQ7, the importance of partnering with the highest quality MK-7 provider, and the tremendous commercial opportunity that MenaQ7 represents to our customers,” says Dan Rosenbaum, NattoPharma CEO. “While our clinically validated and patented MenaQ7 appears in hundreds of products across the globe, we see extraordinary growth ahead as consumers around the world become increasingly aware of the proven health benefits of MenaQ7.”
