Avelis Management Team

Dr. Justin Cannock
President and Chief Scientific Officer 

Dr. Justin Cannock, Avelis’ President and Chief Scientific Officer, is driven by his desire to make a positive difference for humankind.  When he was approached in 2007 to organically increase feed conversion ratios for the livestock industry, the idea gelled with his passion to increase human performance at the cellular level, and Avelis was born. Through Justin’s countless hours of research, laboratory trials, and successful field demonstrations, Avelis has developed patent pending formulations with applications for livestock, human performance, soil remediation, coastal stabilization, and water clarification, to name a few.  His diligent efforts toward intellectual property protection and regulatory compliance are an example of his astute business acumen.  Through his clear vision, strategic risk-taking, and intellectual curiosity, Justin has positioned Avelis for immediate and sustainable market success. Prior to starting Avelis, Justin conducted research on risk-taking and satisfaction in entertainment venues.  His company Cathexis provided bio-metric data in identifying environmental factors and explained customer response.  In accordance with the common theme in Justin’s interests, his research extended to the area of employee heath and wellness. In 2001, Justin founded Tasman Performance Corp., a consulting firm that guided mega-entertainment, retail, and automotive companies in improving their product offerings and marketing efforts by measuring and quantifying customer experiences.  At Tasman, he consulted numerous Fortune 500 companies and his research has had significant impact in new vehicle design, employee training, and new product development.  Today, Justin continues to provide consulting to Tasman clients.
