Meet Marc-Olivier Zwicky
How long have you worked in the Syngenta Seedcare team?
I have been working in the Seedcare team directly for almost 2 years now, but of course have worked with Seedcare in particular during my time in Brazil and the corn seeds portfolio.
Can you briefly describe your work in Seedcare?
I am working as a global key account manager focused mainly on the seed companies that have similar geographical coverage such as Corteva, Bayer, KWS and LG. My work focuses on coordinating the global activities and lately negotiations around new global deals. Exciting 6 months ahead with many opportunities.
What excites you the most about working for Seedcare?
There are many fun aspects in Seedcare. 1. Customers are so energizing and in Seedcare we are quite close to customers. 2. Our technology and the breath of portfolio gives us a very nice platform to combine many types of offers. 3. And of course the resource we get from our Seedcare Institute is unmatched in the industry, which makes my job a lot easier.
Beside the more factual fun facts of Seedcare, I see another exciting part which is our new Seedcare generation which is grooming itself nicely. I feel there is a great potential lurking to be unleashed from the team so I am of course one of the big advocates who enjoys making this happen!
Tell us a little about yourself?
I do enjoy work, but not only. I've been a married man now for a couple of months so I enjoy spending time my wife Cibele a lot. Since she is from Brazil and also does not know my home country too well, we have been exploring some of the lost valleys in the Swiss Alps together. I also enjoy my role as an uncle quite a bit, learning a lot about being patient amongst other fun things. If I ever find the priority, time and money, I would become a certified helicopter pilot!
