Nisus Corp., headquartered in Knoxville, Tenn., has brought on Jamey Gaston as VP of Research and Technology. He succeeds Dr. Jeff Lloyd, who has been promoted to senior VP, Innovation and Sustainability. In his most recent role as Innovation Program Leader for OMNOVA Solutions, Gaston managed product portfolios, acted as liaison between technology group managers and project managers, and leveraged a strong business acumen with technical knowledge to achieve long term, sustainable growth. He holds a bachelor degree in chemistry from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

“We are pleased to attract someone of the caliber of Jamey Gaston,” says Kevin Kirkland, Nisus president and CEO. “Jamey has immense technical knowledge and more than 20 years of experience in product development and successful project leadership. He is poised to make an immediate impact on our goal to develop more value-added products using proprietary pest control and preservative product technology.”

Dr. Lloyd, meanwhile, joined Nisus on Nov. 30, 2001, and has been responsible for research and development, as well as opening new global markets. He holds degrees in applied biology and microbiology, and a doctorate in biochemistry/preservation technology from Imperial College at The University of London. With 27 years of experience in research, technical service and global wood protection, Dr. Lloyd has authored numerous scientific publications and holds several patents. A specialist in preservative biochemistry, formulation and utilization, and product development, Dr. Lloyd has had commercial successes covering the breadth of wood protection, structural pest management and forest pathology.

“It is amazing to work at a company like Nisus, where I have been afforded the freedom to pursue my passions – my love of renewable resources such as wood, and the environment,” Dr. Lloyd says. “There is really nothing more fulfilling than taking a simple idea and seeing it being embraced by customers, and then commercialized for the good of the industry and the environment.”
