Arysta LifeScience North America recently announced new roles for two members of its staff: Chad Effertz as the Head of Research and Development (R&D), and Sam Thornton as the Business Manager, Seed Treatments.

Effertz to lead R&D
Upon joining the company in 2009, Effertz began his career with Arysta LifeScience as a development manager. Most recently, he worked as a marketing manager in U.S. Herbicides.

"A thriving and active R&D department lays a strong foundation for any ag-chem company, and Chad's skill set and expertise makes him a natural fit for the lead role of our team," said Rico Christensen, Business Unit Head, Arysta LifeScience. "His know-how and desire to learn more about how our products help growers is evident in his day-to-day work with Arysta LifeScience."


Thornton to spearhead Seed Treatment efforts
Thornton joined the company last year as a Technical Sales Specialist for the United States sales team, focusing on the Northern Plains. Prior to joining Arysta LifeScience, he worked in seed care, farm record-keeping and sustainability roles with Syngenta.

"Sam's leadership on sales throughout the Northern Plains of our seed-treatment products has been critical to the positive positioning of our seed-treatment portfolio with our customers," said Arturo Redes, Head of Marketing, North America, Arysta LifeScience. "His knowledge of the market and how the products work make him a logical choice for this important role, one that is important as Arysta LifeScience continues to grow its presence in the seed-treatment area."
