Moreno to represent Vestaron in south-central US
Vestaron recently announced the appointment of Jorge Moreno as territory sales manager for the South-Central United States, spanning Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
In addition, Moreno will coordinate business activities in Mexico as Vestaron expands throughout North America.
Vestaron, who has an OMRI-listed product, Leprotec Aqueous Biological Insecticide, earned global recognition for its work, including the inaugural 2015 Bernard Blum Award for novel biocontrol solutions, a 2020 THRIVE Top 50 Growth-Stage honoree, and the prestigious Green Chemistry Challenge Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute in 2020.
Moreno brings more than 25 years of experience in sales, marketing, research and agricultural product development to the job.
“Jorge will be an excellent addition to the Vestaron team as we grow our footprint in this important market,” says Ben Cicora, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Vestaron. “His expertise in agriculture and understanding of this unique growing region are invaluable assets to our team.”
Most recently serving as biological and organic product sales manager at JHBiotech, Moreno’s background includes roles with industry leaders including Bayer Environmental Science, Agrium Advanced Technologies and Univar Environmental Sciences, now Veseris. He holds a Master’s degree in science from the University of Florida Environmental Horticulture Department.
