Monsanto Company, a biotechnology company, has appointed Pierre Courduroux as the company’s new senior vice president and CFO effective on January 1, 2011.
Courduroux currently serves as Monsanto’s finance lead for its global business operations. Courduroux joined the former Monsanto Company in 1990. During his career, Courduroux has served in a variety of leadership positions throughout Monsanto’s finance organization and across its global operating businesses.
Courduroux recently assumed responsibility for the global finance organization across the company’s crop protection and seeds-and-traits divisions. In this role, he also was responsible for establishing processes in conjunction with the controller’s function, treasury, tax, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, risk management and investment decisions for the world’s leading agriculture business.
Prior to this role, he served as the CFO for Monsanto’s global vegetable business, where he was instrumental in the acquisition of the De Ruiter Seeds business. He also has served in senior finance positions within the areas of corporate strategy, corporate planning, controllership, as well as business operations in Europe and Africa.
“For more than 20 years, Pierre has been a valuable asset to Monsanto and our finance organization,” said Hugh Grant, chairman, president and CEO of Monsanto. “Pierre understands our business, has proven financial expertise, and applies that to executing on our strategic vision. His leadership will provide a key anchor as Monsanto focuses on the operational implementation that will drive the growth in this company over the long term.”
