AgroSavfe welcomes Dr Adrian Percy to its Board of Directors in his new role as an Independent Board Member. Dr Percy brings with him over 25 years of international experience at Bayer, where he was most recently the Global Head of R&D of the Crop Science division. His background in designing, implementing and managing large, multi-technology agricultural R&D programs will support the commercialization path of AgroSavfe’s Agrobody biopesticides.
"I am extremely excited to be joining the Board of Directors of AgroSavfe because the Agrobody technology is looking to deliver on two important fronts,” says Dr Adrian Percy. “On the one hand, growers around the world are in clear need of new, highly efficacious tools to protect their crops, while on the other, consumers are demanding that their food is produced using safe products with low environmental impact."
Lieven De Smedt, Chairman of the Board of AgroSavfe adds: “Over the last 2 years, AgroSavfe made tremendous progress with its Agrobody bioactives-based pipeline and with its novel discovery platform. Our biopesticides can now be developed in half the time and cost compared to how chemical compounds are usually developed. For our Board this means that our challenges and opportunities are evolving and are increasingly related to the go-to-market plan of the Agrobody biopesticides. Needless to say, we are very pleased to have Dr Adrian Percy joining us as our new Independent Board Member.”
