Source: FMC news release

FMC Corporation (NYSE:FMC) announced today a strategic realignment of senior staff in its Agricultural Products North America organization. With FMC Agricultural Products Group worldwide revenue at $1.8 billion, the company is making these changes to prepare for projected future growth and to better serve customers.

"With tremendous growth over the past five years, we continue to look for ways to enhance our organization's ability to deliver consistently excellent results," said Marc Hullebroeck, vice president and business director of FMC Agricultural Products' commercial operations in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

"By combining our strategic and retail sales organizations under one leader, we can ensure our efforts are aligned and customers are well served."

As part of the restructuring and future preparation, John Kasper has been promoted to commercial director of FMC Agricultural Products North America.

He will now lead the newly organized sales team, which combines regional business managers and retail marketing managers with the strategic accounts team. In addition, reporting to Kasper will be the business solutions and technical service teams.

Additionally, Aaron Locker will now serve as the marketing director of FMC Agricultural Products North America. This appointment includes the oversight of marketing and communications staff, including product managers, communications managers, market intelligence and eCommunications personnel.

The business services manager, who works with trade associations, consultants and sales support staff, will now be under Locker's supervision.

Both Kasper and Locker will report directly to Hullebroeck. "By putting the best people in the right positions, we are strengthening our team and investing in our future," said Hullebroeck.

Most recently, Kasper managed FMC North America's marketing organization playing a key role in the region's record growth. Kasper has more than 25 years of sales and marketing experience in the industry. He started his agricultural career at Cornell University with the distribution of new cultivars, and also worked with Agway as a crop advisor.

Prior to joining FMC in 2010, he served as the vice president of sales and marketing at NISSO Agrochemicals. He is a graduate of Rutgers University.

Locker successfully managed FMC North America's strategic sales organization for the past several years. He joined FMC in 2005 as a product manager before moving to strategic accounts director. Locker has more than 20 years of sales and marketing experience in the crop protection industry.

A graduate of The Ohio State University, Locker previously worked with Syngenta as a strategic programs manager. He also has previous work experiences in sales management, account management and channel strategy.

"Throughout these organizational shifts, our focus on customers stays the same," Hullebroeck said. "We remain committed to bringing value and innovation to all our relationships."
