Syngenta Announces New Head of Professional Products Division

Rob Neill has been named vice president of Syngenta Professional Products for North America, the company announced recently. Neill, formerly vice president of marketing for Syngenta Crop Protection, will oversee the Syngenta division that creates pest and vegetation management solutions for the golf, lawn and landscape, and ornamental industries.

“Rob has been instrumental in the development and execution of our business strategy in the U.S.,” said Valdemar Fischer, president of Syngenta Crop Protection in North America. “Those strategic skills will help tremendously in guiding and growing our professional products division, and keeping us focused on creating innovative products that respond best to customer needs.” Neill has been with Syngenta and its legacy companies for more than 24 years, serving in global product management and overseeing marketing in the U.K. and Latin America.

Neill graduated from the University of Guelph (Canada) with a B.S. in agriculture and from York University (Canada) with an M.B.A. He will be replaced by Travis Dickinson as vice president of marketing for Syngenta Crop Protection. Dickinson, who has been with Syngenta since 1986, has led business development for the Syngenta corn and soybean markets for the last two years. Neill replaces Bill Lewis who left Syngenta last month to pursue other business interests.
