Arysta LifeScience Corporation Names Donna Uchida As Global Communications Leader


10/19/2005 5:11:34 PM

TOKYO, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- An accomplished corporate communicator is now a key player with one of the fastest-moving companies in the crop protection industry.

Arysta LifeScience Corporation announced today that Donna Uchida has joined the company as Global Communications Leader.

Based in San Francisco, Uchida will lead Arysta's global branding initiative and internal and external communications worldwide. Among her responsibilities are the development and delivery of a consistent, integrated corporate message across all markets and leadership of Arysta's Global Communications Team. Uchida will report to Elin Miller, President and CEO of Arvesta Corporation, Arysta's NAFTA subsidiary, and will work closely with Arysta's Tokyo-based leadership team.

Uchida brings more than 20 years' experience as a practitioner, strategist and senior manager in the fields of public relations, employee and stakeholder communications and issues management. Her background includes management and leadership positions with several prominent companies (Gap Inc., Oracle Corporation, Wells Fargo & Company and Ketchum, to name a few) as well as academic posts at three U.S. universities.

According to Dr. Christopher Richards, President and CEO of Arysta LifeScience Corporation, Uchida's range of expertise is highly compatible with Arysta's strategy for 2005 and beyond.

"This company is growing around the world -- through carefully selected acquisitions, through strategic partnerships and through the talents and dedication of our employees," says Dr. Richards. "Having a professional of Donna Uchida's caliber in charge of global communications will be a tremendous asset for Arysta going forward. We're delighted she's on board."

Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, Arysta is an entrepreneurial provider of crop protection and life science products worldwide. The company is growing by building a world-class business in the development, marketing and distribution of respected crop protection brands and an intimate understanding of the needs of global producers.
