Biologicals company Certis USA recently announced Rob Gibson would join the company as its global portfolio manager.

Gibson joins Global Vice-President of Marketing Chris Judd as the second industry veteran the biologicals leader has tapped to meet the growing demand for their bio-based crop solutions, according to a news release from the company.

Gibson will focus his marketing efforts across Certis’ broad biological portfolio, ensuring that growers and supply channel partners domestically and globally have the biological solution they need available when they need it, according to the release.

Most recently, Gibson served as the associate director of business development for Virginia Tech, Fralin Biomedical Research Institute, where he supported the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences faculty with opportunities to license research technologies for start-up potential, according to the news release. Prior to that, he worked in various capacities at Novozymes Biologicals, including as Regional Strategic Alliance Manager for BioAg Commercial where he led the Asia-Pacific region. Rob also held the roles of R&D Support Specialist, Laboratory Manager and Research Scientist at Novozymes.

“Rob’s commercial experience in the global agriculture industry, as well as his in-depth technical understanding, will be a great benefit to Certis, where we value science and its power to provide the solutions that growers need to continue feeding the world,” Judd in the news release. “Certis’ grower and supply channel partners will now have another dedicated resource working diligently to provide the solutions in our current portfolio and leading the innovation that provides the solutions they will need tomorrow.”
