Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. recently announced that Kevin Hammill has joined as Chief Commercial Officer.

Mr. Hammill brings over 25 years of leadership experience and broad commercial success in the crop protection (row crop, non-crop, horticulture, soil and seed), plant nutrition and biotechnology industries. 

Most recently, Mr. Hammill was Chief Operating Officer at Pivot Bio, a startup company which harnesses the innate ability of naturally occurring microbes to provide crops with nutrients exactly when they need it the most. Prior to Pivot Bio, Hammill was at Valent USA, a division of Sumitomo Chemical, where he oversaw the U.S. Marketing Group, seed treatment business unit and Canadian business operations. Over his 12 years at Valent, Hammill created and directed new growth platforms, commercial alliances, licensing agreements, strategic initiatives and technology adoption that resulted in significant incremental growth and margin to the company.

Before Valent, Mr. Hammill had multiple sales and marketing management positions over the course of 12 years at BASF and American Cyanamid (acquired by BASF in 2000), such as Director of Marketing and Sales, Regional Sales Manager, and Product Manager.  He established and implemented strategic direction for a multi-hundred million dollar product portfolio, overseeing global brands and intellectual property, negotiating and managing global licensing agreements with market-leading bioscience and biotechnology companies, identifying high potential market segments, and developing key strategic alliances. As the Director of Sales and Marketing, Mr. Hammill managed the business unit P&L and led a team of marketing, sales, and technical development professionals. In the role of Regional Sales and National Accounts Manager, he managed a high-caliber sales team and was responsible for forging a productive relationship with distribution customers to facilitate the attainment of mutual business goals.

Mr. Hammill has a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture and a Master’s degree in Agriculture Business from the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

“I joined MBI because I believe that their highly-effective and widely respected biological products have tremendous potential in the market. I look forward to leveraging my more than two decades of commercial leadership experience to drive forward MBI’s growth plans,” said Mr. Hammill, Chief Commercial Officer of MBI.

“I am thrilled to have someone with Kevin’s acumen and track record of proven results lead our commercial business and collaborate with the rest of our leadership team to grow our sales and enhance value to our shareholders, employees and customers,” said Pam Marrone, CEO and Founder of MBI.
