AgTech company Biotalys announces that Kevin Helash has commenced his role as Chief Executive Officer of the company. His appointment was announced earlier this week. Former CEO Patrice Sellès will remain in an advisory role for the next 30 days to ensure a smooth transition.

Kevin Helash said: “I am excited to begin my journey with Biotalys and was delighted to meet the team in Ghent, Belgium, this week. With Biotalys’ groundbreaking technology platform and a diverse group of skilled professionals, I am confident we will be able to materially contribute to a more sustainable agriculture.”

“At the same time, I want to warmly thank my predecessor Patrice Sellès for where he has brought the company during his leadership over the last four years, as we are moving closer to entering the market with our first protein-based biofungicide, Evoca. I am grateful that Patrice will support me during the initial phase, before taking the well-deserved opportunity to spend more time with his family, as was his wish.”

Kevin Helash’ experience will be instrumental in leading the acceleration of Biotalys’ development. He is a results-driven corporate executive who brings more than 30 years of international experience in agriculture and biological products to Biotalys.

His experience spans commercializing numerous breakthrough technologies in the agricultural industry on a global scale, including in positions as CEO of EnviroKure, Marrone Bio Innovations - previously listed on Nasdaq - and Agrinos.
