New CEO Jean-Pierre Princen Appointed Head of Goemar Laboratories


12/22/2011 6:42:44 AM

SAINT MALO, France, December 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Jean-Pierre Princen, 55, a well-known figure in the Agro-Industry world, is taking over the leadership of the Goëmar Group, a company specialized in sustainable technologies for productive Agriculture.

The French Goëmar Group, which specializes in particular in Sea Technologies for Agriculture, has announced the arrival February 15th 2012 of its new Chief Executive Officer, Jean-Pierre Princen. He is currently in charge of the Crop Protection business for France and Benelux at the DuPont de Nemours group, and is Chairman at UIPP, the Plant Protection Industry Union. This appointment reflects the shareholders' wish to speed up the Group's growth by expanding the Goëmar position in the French and international markets, through the development and the acquisition of new products for productive and sustainable Agriculture.

Jean-Pierre Princen has been involved for many years in the development and the progress in the world of agriculture, and seeks to intensify both: "With a career spent to develop various strategic projects both in France and the USA in such major groups as Dupont, Monsanto and Cargill, I am truly delighted to commit myself as the CEO and co-investor of Goëmar. I was really attracted by what this mid-size French company embodies, with rapid organic growth based upon ongoing innovations, in the fields of plant bio-control and bio-stimulation. I believe that the Goëmar solutions are complementary to fertilizers and agro-chemicals to improve plant nutrition and health."

Pierre Lefebvre, who hands over his responsibilities to Jean-Pierre Princen, takes back his position within the board of Directors. "I am very happy to hand over the Goëmar Group commands to Jean-Pierre Princen. I completely trust his capabilities to take on the destiny of this nice company."

For BeCapital and Pechel, the majority shareholders in Goëmar, the arrival of the new Chief Executive Officer demonstrates their ambition for Goëmar to serve the Agricultural model of tomorrow: "Jean-Pierre Princen's agreement to join the Goëmar Group as an investor and Chief Executive Officer is a tremendous asset. The combination of our financial resources and his experience and leadership will strengthen the Group's position to serve a productive and sustainable Agriculture."
