Corbet Scientific Welcomes New Regional Director of Agronomy
JACKSON, WY (January 17, 2023) – Jesús Valencia joins Corbet Scientific as the Regional Director of Agronomy. In this role, he will advise key customers and prospects on Corbet’s products and technology and drive market share growth of Corbet products as a regional expert based in California. He will report directly to the CEO.
Most recently, Valencia was the Western Sales Agronomist Manager for NutriAg USA. In this role, he supported and expanded business in the western US and Mexico. Before that, he was the Head Agronomist for Buttonwillow Warehouse Company, supporting the sales agronomists in California’s coastal region and the Central San Joaquin Valley.
Valencia holds a Bachelor of Science in agronomy and plant science as well as a Master of Science in plant protection and agricultural sciences from California State University Fresno.
Valencia’s background in agronomy and sales aligns well with Corbet’s mission to develop agricultural chemical solutions that enhance crop production and limit environmental impact, including its flagship adjuvant, Hydrovant®. His diverse skill set will help the organization navigate a new market for the company, as Hydrovant was just approved for sale and use in California.
“We’re all very excited to have Jesús on board. His extensive experience and knowledge give us an incredible advantage as we enter the California market,” Glenn Pacchiana, Corbet Scientific’s CEO, said.
Valencia said he looks forward to helping Corbet grow and expand as a company.
“My experience in research and development, launching new products, gathering sales leads, and more will help me to bring a fresh perspective to Corbet Scientific,” Valencia said. “I’m excited to put these skills to work to help this organization realize its potential.”
