Industry veteran to lead U.S. ag business sales for Certis Biologicals
Industry sales veteran Tim Riley will lead Certis Biologicals’ U.S.-based sales team as national sales director for U.S. Ag Business.
Riley joined Columbia, Maryland-based Certis Biologicals in 2020 as key account manager, supporting the company’s business partnerships with distribution leaders. In his new role, he will manage a nationwide team of sales managers and key accounts for the producer, distributer and marketer of biopesticide solutions for organic and conventional commercial growers.
“Throughout his career and his tenure at Certis Biologicals, Tim has proven himself a valuable leader with extensive knowledge of bringing products to the markets that need them,” said Amy O’Shea, Certis Biologicals president and CEO. “This leadership will strengthen our U.S. ag market and allow us to serve growers in effectively putting biologicals to work for their operations.”
Riley has worked in sales and marketing in the ag-chem, seed, equipment and animal health sectors for companies including Amvac Chemical, American Cyanamid, CDMS and Caterpillar Inc.
“Certis Biologicals’ experienced sales team is the tip of the spear in bringing our biological solutions to growers so that they can utilize their power to protect crops and their investments year after year,” Riley says. “The relationships that they build with U.S. growers and our distribution partners are integral to the growth of Certis and to the agriculture industry as a whole. I am proud to work with our team to enhance those relationships well into the future.”
