Marrone Bio Innovations announced that the company has hired Ruben Ramos to lead its growing Latin American business.

Mr. Ramos was Latin America BioSolutions Lead for Arysta LifeScience, one of the world’s largest privately held crop protection and life science companies with 2013 revenues of US$ 1.6 billion. In March 2014, Arysta acquired Laboratoires Goëmar, where Mr. Ramos was Latin American Business Director and USA Bio Pesticide Marketing Manager. Prior to Goëmar, Mr. Ramos was Vice-President Sales & Marketing, Las Plumas y Asociados, the second largest agribusiness company that provides supplies and technological solutions for farmers nationwide in Venezuela through more than 13 commercial offices and a distributor’s network. Before Las Plumas, Mr. Ramos was Marketing Manager, Bayer CropScience Venezuela.

Mr. Ramos holds a Bachelor of Science Major in Agronomic Engineering from Romulo Gallegos University, San Juan de Los Morros, Venezuela.

Mr. Ramos stated, “I am pleased to continue working in an area of my passion – biologicals. With MBI’s extensive portfolio of biopesticides and biostimulants, I am excited to help build MBI’s growth in LATAM. I look forward to bringing biologicals to growers seeking effective products that are residue exempt and low risk for resistance.”

Julie Versman, Senior Director of International Business, added, “We are thrilled to have an established individual with experience in biologicals in Latin America. With our expanding number of new registrations, most recently for Grandevo and Venerate bioinsecticides in Mexico, and our focus on building the international business, the time had come to resource this function for growth.”
