Anuvia Plant Nutrients recently named Chris Larson senior vice president, Operations and Research & Development and Don Warren vice president, Supply Chain. Larson comes with a track record for quality, development and a high-level experience having led teams in multi-million-dollar manufacturing facilities, creating state of the art processes and establishing clear pathways to success. Warren brings his proven ability to lead integrated global supply chain teams within diverse manufacturing facilities.

“Quality and integrity are integral to everything we do,” said Anuvia CEO Amy Yoder. “In our search for people to fill these two critical positions, we didn’t focus only on operational nuts and bolts. We wanted leaders with intimate knowledge of manufacturing and operational processes who have the passion to push for excellence and the ability to build teams to help us reach out business objectives. We found all of these qualities in Chris and Don.”

Larson, who holds a master’s in chemical engineering from Columbia University and a bachelor’s in chemical engineering from University of Virginia, says, “It is a very exciting time to be joining the Anuvia team. With their expansion plans well underway, I am proud to be able to contribute and be part of their continued success.”

Warren says, “I am gratified to be a part of such an elite and dynamic team. In just a few short years, their growth has been impressive. I look forward to helping them further their short and long-term goals.”

Most recently Larson worked for UPL as global head of Formulation Manufacturing. Prior to UPL, he served as vice president of Manufacturing and Supply Chain Operations for Arysta LifeScience where he was responsible for global manufacturing, supply chain and formulation development laboratories.

He has also held managerial supply chain positions at L’Oreal USA , The Dow Chemical Company and Angus Chemical Company.

Warren also comes from a nine-year tenure at Arysta LifeScience where he worked as head of Supply Chain for North America, Australia and New Zealand. Prior to then, he was strategic sourcing lead. Warren’s previous experience includes director positions at Reichhold and Ashland Chemical Company.

He holds a BS in environmental science from East Carolina University and a master’s in environmental sciences and engineering from the University of North Carolina.
