Syngenta has further added to its Ornamentals team in the UK, with the appointment of Sarah Hughes as a dedicated Business Manager, to strengthen support for its broadening product range.
Sarah is an experienced agronomist with a background in plant science and genetics. She has a wealth of knowledge in bringing products from the Syngenta R&D pipeline into the commercial market for customers.
“It is an incredibly exciting time in the ornamentals business, with the introduction of pioneering biological and biopesticide innovations, along with new chemistry to add to the existing Syngenta portfolio and digital tools to optimise product use.
“Working with Syngenta’s R&D scientists, technical support and commercial partners, there’s now the opportunity to develop more effective and consistent integrated management solutions in ornamental crops, to benefit our customers and achieve better results,” she said.
Allied to further developing initiatives for customers’ business development, new digital decision support resources and enhancing accurate application technology, Sarah reinforced the company’s commitment to delivering sustainable solutions.
A Nuffield Scholar in innovative plant growing technology, Sarah will work with Daniel Lightfoot MG, who is now responsible for Syngenta’s Professional Solutions business across Western Europe and Italy. She will also be supported in the UK by specialist Technical Managers, Sean Loakes and Glenn Kirby, alongside Marketing Communications Manager for EAME, Liz Green.
