Engrain, a local enzyme technology development company, has promoted its logistics specialist, Taylor McFall, to sales manager of global accounts. With the promotion, McFall will be traveling from Manhattan to Nairobi, Kenya’s capitol city. There, McFall will be responsible for logistics development, distribution, and inventory, and will also be working to solidify Engrain’s presence throughout the region.
Engrain believes that having an Engrain manager on the ground will make it easier to serve local clients face to face. Engrain’s clientele consists of flour mills and large-scale bakeries; therefore, McFall will be responsible for making sure the company’s local product warehouse, located in Mombasa, Kenya, is always fully stocked to meet the growing demands of local millers and bakers.
“As Engrain continues to stock growing numbers of enzyme and fortification products in Mombasa, McFall will ensure that our logistics in Kenya, East Africa, and the surrounding areas are responsive to our customers’ specific requirements,” said Magnus Baumann, president of Engrain eastern holdings.
This increase in demand has been ignited by governments in many African nations, which have mandated vitamin fortification in flour. Engrain seeks to eliminate this concern for millers by providing vitamin fortification products that are affordable, efficient, and available within close proximity to their milling locations.
Prior to joining Engrain, McFall worked at Allen, Gibbs, and Houlik, conducting audits for companies, and also previously worked for the USDA Grain Marketing and Product Research Center as part of the Engineering Research Unit. McFall received his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Kansas State University.
