Pramod Thota

PHILADELPHIA – FMC Corporation continues to invest in the professional pest services market by naming Bethwyn Todd to a newly created, expanded role and bringing in Pramod Thota to lead FMC Professional Solutions (FPS), the business unit within FMC Agricultural Solutions serving the pest, turf and ornamental industries. 

Todd’s role includes leadership of FMC's new BioSolutions and Seed Treatment businesses while retaining executive oversight of FPS as global business director. Among other advantages, this position will allow Todd to leverage research and development of biologicals and other pest-fighting innovations across all business units. Thota, transitioning from the company's Corporate Development and Strategy Team, has been appointed director of FPS, focusing on long-term growth, strategic alliances and new product development.

“We are certain these changes will bring greater focus to our emerging businesses and establish the right structure to deliver exceptional results,” said Mark Douglas, president, FMC Agricultural Solutions.

Hansen, a leading biosciences company. FMC has created an end-to-end biological platform that complements its traditional strengths in synthetic chemistries, and positions the company to be a future leader in biological plant protection.

Thota joins FMC Professional Solutions from the company's Corporate Development and Strategy Team, where he spent the last two years focusing on strategy, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and global business development.
