FMC announces a leadership change to address the planned retirement of its U.S. commercial director, John Kasper, in June. Christina Coen, currently FMC’s North America marketing director, will assume the role of U.S. commercial director effective May 1.     

“We thank John for his years of service. He built key strategic relationships that drove outstanding results for the region,” says Amy O’Shea, vice president and North America business director for FMC. “John has also been a mentor to many and set the bar high for our organization.”

Coen leads marketing for the full FMC portfolio of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, plant health and technology products. She joined FMC in 2017 from the Dow Chemical Company, where she held operations, marketing and licensing leadership positions and was the North America crop protection project success leader.

“Christina’s knowledge and influence in the agricultural industry, coupled with her ability to develop a strong team, has rapidly advanced our marketing strategy and annual programs,” says O’Shea. “Alignment between sales and marketing has been core to her successful approach, and in her new role that will be further strengthened.”
