The Syngenta Group has announced its official launch of a new business structure. It unites Syngenta AG, headquartered in Switzerland, ADAMA, based in Israel and the agricultural businesses of Sinochem, based in China. This new entity is headquartered in Switzerland, has 48,000 employees in more than 100 countries and had sales of US$23 billion in 2019.
Under its new structure, the organization encompasses four business units:
- Syngenta Crop Protection – led by Jon Parr based in Basel, Switzerland
- Syngenta Seeds – led by Jeff Rowe based in Chicago, U.S.
- ADAMA – led by Ignacio Dominguez based in Airport City, Israel
- Syngenta Group China – led by Hengde Qin based in Shanghai, China
Erik Fyrwald, formerly CEO of Syngenta AG, becomes Syngenta Group CEO.
In late June 2020, Syngenta Group will announce its new Good Growth Plan. This will be the Group’s first major initiative after its launch and will address the shifting challenges faced by farmers around the world and society’s changing expectations of agricultural technology and sustainability.
