The ANZAC Region has been changed to the North America Region, consisting of Cheminova, Inc. and Cheminova Canada, Inc.

Assuming responsibility for management of the new North America Region will be the executive management team of Rico Toft Christensen and Diane Allemang. Toft Christensen has been with Cheminova for 14 years in a variety of commercial roles, including Brazil Country Manager and, most recently, as Vice President, Global Portfolio Management in Denmark. Allemang has been with Cheminova for 10 years and serves as Vice President, Global Regulatory Affairs and as Vice President, Regional Regulatory Affairs. Toft Christensen (CEO) will focus on sales, finance and operations and Allemang (Executive Vice President) will focus on marketing, development and regulatory affairs. Allemang will also retain her global regulatory responsibilities.

Cheminova, Inc., headquartered in Research Triangle Park, NC, and Cheminova Canada Inc., headquartered in Kilworth, Ontario, Canada, are subsidiaries of Cheminova A/S, a global leader in the production, development and sale of crop protection products.
