Thedosis’s initial responsibility will be to provide technical support across Exova’s food chemistry operations work, primarily based in its Birmingham laboratory.
He will also assist in the development and delivery of training programs for clients, as well as expand the capabilities within the firm’s chemistry department.
Before joining Exova, Theodosis spent over eight years with LGC Group, where he worked in food chemistry as well as food and consumer safety, most recently holding the position of laboratory manager.
Phil Coles, director of health sciences, Europe at Exova, said his appointment came at a time of “significant investment” in Exova’s Birmingham nutritional chemistry laboratory.
“Theodosis has extensive experience working across food chemistry and an expertise in chemical analysis,” he added.
“This combined with his knowledge of operations management makes him a valuable asset to our customers, who can rely on him for expert guidance as they navigate complex and often-changing UK and EU regulatory testing requirements.”
Theodosis is also a member of the Institute of Food Science and Technology and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
