Monsanto, one of the world’s leading agricultural corporations, named Michiel De Jongh as its business lead to take the reins of its operations in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus.
The citizen of the Netherlands joined Monsanto back in 2004 and served in various regional and global roles in South America and Asia Pacific. Before coming to Ukraine, he worked as a Managing Director in Korea and Japan.
‘I am honored to be given the opportunity to lead Monsanto in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus, as these countries are ones of the most important breadbaskets of the world, being the leading producers of food and feed. Monsanto has already built up a firm position in the local corn and rape seeds industry, and I will look forward to grow our business further and strengthen our reputation for high quality products, technology and leadership, always focusing on contributing to the success of the farmer,’ De Jongh said.
