Bayer Crop Science has announced that Marion McPherson will be the new Head of Business for Bayer Crop Science in the UK and Ireland as well as the Nordic countries. She moves back to the UK after a number of Crop Science Leadership roles in Europe as well as in Bayer’s UK Pharmaceutical Division. Commenting on her new role, Mrs Mcpherson said, “I am incredibly excited and proud to lead the UK Crop Science team at this crucial time and I look forward to working with the team and our customers to help shape the future of farming in the UK.”

Outgoing head of Business, Michael Muncey, who is leaving the company this summer, after 32 years in various roles in Germany, Hungary and France, as well as the UK, reflected on his departure: “I am leaving at a pivotal point in UK agriculture, with Brexit, the global pandemic and ever-increasing vagaries of the weather all impacting UK farmers in their ability to grow high quality affordable food. Nevertheless, the time is right for me. I am immensely proud of my last 4 years back in the UK and Ireland where we have integrated Monsanto and adjusted the organization to be fit for the future. It has been an honour and privilege to lead the team. I am convinced that with Marion at the helm, Bayer Crop Science can continue to help farmers towards a successful productive, and sustainable future.”
