Bayer has announced a new member of its Regulatory Affairs team.
Bayer has announced the appointment of Melita Shalders to the position of regulatory affairs manager. Ms Shalders will report directly to Jeff Einam and will be based in Melbourne. She will be a permanent member of the Environmental Science team at Bayer (soon to become Envu).
Ms Shalders has been in regulatory affairs for more than 18 years. Originally from Ireland, she moved to Australia and began her career working as a research officer conducting efficacy and safety field trials on a range of horticultural crops in Tasmania.
After three years working in the field, she joined Nufarm in the role of regulatory product manager where she managed a large product portfolio including insecticides and fumigants. After running her own consultancy business for a number of years, Ms Shalders took up a senior role at Eurofins Agroscience Services and later at Staphyt, where she set up a successful regulatory business unit for Australasia.
She is looking forward to getting to know the Bayer team and finding out what exciting new products are in development.
