Here's hoping Adam Monroe knows he's now in ACC sports country.
Monroe, 43, is the new North American president of Novozymes, a Danish biochemical company with more than 450 employees at its U.S. headquarters in Franklinton.
The official announcement notes that Monroe was "born and raised in Arkansas, received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Arkansas and is a diehard Razorback fan."
Monroe replaces Lars Hansen, who has returned to Denmark to head the company’s European business.
Novozymes is the world's largest producer of enzymes and has seen a surge in demand tied to ethanol production.
The company recently completed a $26 million expansion to its Franklinton facility, adding more research, lab and office space. The plant also supplies enzymes for other uses, including brewing beer, making detergents and treating wastewater.
