NAVASOTA, Texas — Sexing Technologies has named dairy industry veteran Jack Hippen as its National Sales and Production Director. In his newly created position, Hippen will lead the company’s sales and marketing teams and oversee distribution of the semen needed to prove high genomic bulls in Sexing Technologies’ Young Sire Program.
He was raised on a dairy, beef and crop farm in northern Illinois and has almost 30 years of experience in corporate management, marketing and sales — most of it with dairy-related and livestock reproductive services companies.
“We are extremely pleased and excited to have a man of Jack’s caliber joining Sexing Technologies,” said company Co-CEO Maurice Rosenstein. “I can’t think of a better person to harness the genetic potential of our young sires and ultimately develop the best bulls possible to meet the needs of the dairy world.”
Before joining Sexing Technologies, Hippen held senior management positions with DeLaval, ABS, Alta Genetics and BouMatic. He will be based at Sexing Technologies’ Vienna, Wisc. facility.
“I’m excited to be a part of a company which represents innovation via genetic technologies and products to the dairy producers across the globe,” Hippen said. “There are many challenges facing the livestock reproduction industry today and Sexing Technologies has positioned itself to be a global leader in providing solutions to these challenges, particularly those involving genetics. Our goal is to deliver products and information that will assist dairies in maximizing their profitability and reaching their goal of producing high quality milk.”
Hippen earned a bachelor of science degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and an MBA from Edgewood College in Madison, Wisc.
Sexing Technologies is a worldwide leader in livestock reproductive services, including sex sorted semen and embryo production.
