Rotariu hops from Nufarm ship to lead Nuseed
Nuseed has announced Roger Rotariu as its new lead for marketing of North America.
Rotariu is no stranger to agriculture having spent the past 25-plus-years working with companies such as Cargill and Bayer CropScience in various positions.
Prior to taking on this new role, he was with Nufarm, Nuseed’s parent company, as the western Canadian marketing manager and was most recently Nufarm’s portfolio and customer marketing manager, responsible for Canadian and North American cereal portfolios. Currently, he’s also the director to the Canadian Seed Trade Association (CSTA).
His main priority will be Nuseed’s introduction into the Canadian and U.S. canola markets. He will also lead marketing strategy for Nuseed’s North American sunflower, omega-3 canola and sorghum business units.
Rotariu started the position this month.
“These are exciting times at Nuseed as we grow globally. We are pleased Roger is bringing his strategic ag marketing and business management expertise to lead Nuseed’s introduction into the North American canola market,” says Nuseed global commercial general manager, Brent Javra.
“The opportunity to launch a new seed company into the North American canola market is truly exciting,” says Rotariu. “Nuseed is the canola market leader in Australia, with a rich bank of global germplasm and a primed canola R&D pipeline ready to bring a new opportunity to U.S. and Canadian growers.”
