Krka has recruited Stella Skelton RVN as Account Manager for the North of England – a region covering South Yorkshire and Cheshire, up to Cumbria and Northumberland.  

With a comprehensive background in animal health, Stella Skelton has worked as a veterinary nurse for 14 years across a mixture of charity, independent and corporate practices.  During the last four years she has focussed her knowledge and expertise into customer sales roles.  

In her Krka account management position, she will be responsible for enhancing partnerships with veterinary practices and other animal health businesses to expand sales of Krka’s portfolio of farm and companion animal pharmaceutical solutions. 

Commenting on her new role, she said: “I’m excited to be taking this next step to strengthen my career in animal health and to work for Krka in my home region. It is a great opportunity to demonstrate to veterinary businesses the value of Krka’s growing range of reliable and affordable solutions that provide quality alternatives for their clients and patients.”

Will Ridgway, National Sales Manager for Krka, said: “Our model of vertical integration has helped us to keep our supply chain stable, particularly during the turbulent times over the last couple of years and we know this is something that our veterinary customers really value and appreciate.

“Stella’s understanding of the daily operations of practice life, thanks to her nursing and sales experience, make her ideally suited to support many of our current and new customers in the North of England. We’re delighted to welcome her to the Krka team.”
