Melissa Gillis Joins Performance Genetics
Performance Genetics LLC yesterday announced that Melissa Gillis has been appointed as its Australasian Representative. "We are delighted to add Melissa to the team for the Australasian sales series and beyond. After not renewing our agreement with Matchem Genetics to use our technology in Australasia we were on the look out for someone that had the qualifications and drive to implement our business in Australasia and Melissa is the perfect fit," said Performance Genetics' Byron Rogers. Gillis, who has worked for Australasian farms including Erinvale, Kooringal, Musk Creek, Swettenham Stud and Windsor Park Stud, as well as Tweenhills Stud in England, commented: "Having already identified the likes of Catchy, Pariah, Seaburge, Fontiton, Ability, Legless Veuve and current Hong Kong stars Nothingilikemore and Hot King Prawn as yearlings for its clients in a very short period of time, I am really excited to see where I can assist clients in consistently selecting superior runners using Performance Genetics' technology."
