US-based vitamins, minerals and supplements (VMS) specialist The Nature's Bounty Co has appointed Faissal Tahiri as president of its International business.
Tahiri joins from Pfizer where he was global commercial lead for the company's Established Products division.
During more than 15 years at Pfizer, Tahiri managed consumer healthcare and prescription pharmaceutical businesses in Canada, France, Latin America and Portugal. Before joining Pfizer in 2002, he worked in brand marketing for Colgate-Palmolive in the Middle East and the US.
