“We are very excited to bring Karsten Neuffer as new Global CEO on board. His strong seed background and his leadership skills make him the right successor to Mike Gumina, whom I want to thank for his outstanding contribution and dedicated service for the past eight years,” said Board Chairman, Constantin Liechtenstein.

After he started his career with McKinsey advising chemical and agriculture corporations, Neuffer joined Syngenta in 2006, working in various strategic, commercial, and executive roles.
