    PelGar International is pleased to announce the appointment of John McGillivray as its Commercial Director
    John McGillivray, PelGar’s Commercial DirectorAsked how he felt about joining PelGar John replied. "PelGar is a serious international player with real growth aspirations. This brings with it an increase in size and complexity of the business, and I relish the opportunity of being part of the next step in the company’s development."
    Graduating with a degree in Agriculture, John joined a leading fertilizer and agrochemical distributor in Zimbabwe before moving to ICI Agrochemicals. He embarked on a career that transitioned from technical to commercial roles as he moved from the UK to lead businesses in India, Korea, Hong Kong and Malaysia. During this time he saw ICI Agrochemicals become Zeneca and finally Syngenta.
    Since leaving Syngenta in 2007 John has gained further experience in South East Asia and Australia in the bio-ethanol and liquid fertiliser markets. In 2015 he returned to the UK joining Plant Impact plc as its Commercial Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa before joining PelGar in May this year.
    "I have substantial business and market development experience in overseas markets," explains John. "In my role with PelGar I plan to draw on that experience to expand the company’s market position. Since PelGar acquired Agropharm there are several new and complementary business areas to pursue. There will be plenty of challenges and opportunities and I see PelGar as more agile, flexible and responsive to its customers than the multinationals. There are exciting times ahead for PelGar and I am pleased to be a part of it."
