Insta-Pro announces that Jonathan Kingsbury has been named president and CEO.

Kingsbury assumes the position beginning Monday, June 14.

Kingsbury has more than 20 years of senior-level sales and marketing experience in industrial equipment roles as well as a depth of international experience, most recently as vice president, sales and marketing of Hydra-Flex. Prior to that, Kingsbury served as vice president, sales for Nilfisk, a global manufacturer of floor cleaning equipment, and global director for Ecolab, a global leader in cleaning and sanitizing products.

"Jonathan joins Insta-Pro at an important time for our company, our customers, and the industry" says Nick Santrizos, chairman of the board. "He has extensive experience leading innovative businesses through hands-on engagement with clients and converting their requirements and feedback into valuable products and services that solve their unique challenges.

"Insta-Pro is known throughout the animal feed industry for its best-in-class extrusion technology and nutritional expertise. Jonathan is the right leader to build upon our new advances in extrusion technology and lead our clients to a higher level as we strive to meet the increased global demand for protein and the marketplace's selective appetite for quality food products."

Insta-Pro has a unique company culture focused on taking care of each other and their customers, says Kingsbury.

“As the processing industry continues to evolve, Insta-Pro has been on the forefront bringing larger equipment to market and highlighting proven nutritional advantages for animals and humans," he says.

"In this respect, Insta-Pro has positioned itself strongly against its competitors who fall short in providing feeding trials and a suite of services to their clients.

“As the world opens up post-pandemic, I look forward to working with the Insta-Pro team, and welcome the opportunity to meet with Insta-Pro customers and prospects.”

Kingsbury received a BA in philosophy from DePauw University as well as MBA from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota.
