PHILADELPHIA – FMC Professional Solutions recently named Catherine Bernard product manager for the company’s pest market segment.

A Pennsylvania native who spent the last five years living in France, Bernard holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Lehigh University.

After moving to Lyon, France in 2006, Bernard completed an MBA from Ecole de management de Lyon.
