PHILADELPHIA – FMC Professional Solutions, a business unit of FMC Corporation, announces the hiring of Chris Bowley in the role of Product Manager overseeing its pest market segment.

Bowley, a native of England, has spent his entire career working in the pest management industry. He started his career while in college as a researcher at the British Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food working on the biology and control of stored product insects and mites. He later held several positions within pest control, including a mix of marketing, technical, product management and sales support roles.

The announcement was made by Rick Ekins, marketing manager for FMC Professional Solutions. Bowley started with FMC on November 9.

“Chris has tremendous experience as a pest management professional that makes him ideally suited for this position at FMC Professional Solutions,” Ekins said. “By having worked in both corporate sales, marketing and technical roles, he has insight into the needs of our end-user customers and how we can better serve them. He will be a valuable addition to the marketing team.”

A graduate of Thames Valley University in Berkshire, England, Bowley holds degrees in applied biology and entomology. He moved to the United States in 1983 and settled in Pittsburgh, where he oversaw 14 pest management sales representatives for a local company. Since then he has held various positions at pest firms in Maryland and New Jersey.

“I’m excited to be on board with FMC and I look forward to a great new beginning to my career,” said Bowley. “After having spent many years working on the front lines as a PMP, I’m eager to make the move to being a part of a strong manufacturer that has always treated the end-user as a valuable part of its business.”

Bowley will report directly to Ekins. A father of two boys, he holds a fondness for the city of Pittsburgh, it being the first American city he lived in. He also spends much of his free time coaching and playing soccer.
