Cary, N.C. (March 22, 2016)

Reggie Underwood, vice president of sales in plant nutrition for Verdesian Life Sciences, has announced his retirement, effective April 8. Through dedication to his sales team and to the customer, Underwood helped to shape Verdesian into the company it is today.

“Although my career in agri-science has spanned more than 38 years, my time with Verdesian stands out,” Underwood said. “We have the people and products to meet the needs of the crop nutrition and seed treatment segments. Seeing all our teams come together to provide hardworking farmers with great products has been wonderful.”

Successfully navigating several roles throughout his tenure, Underwood was essential during the company’s transition from Specialty Fertilizer Products (SFP) to Verdesian. He previously served as national sales manager for SFP, serving in both sales and managerial roles.

“Reggie is a perfect example of what makes the Verdesian team second to none,” said Greg Thompson, chief operating officer of Verdesian. “Through his years of service, he has built great teams and made meaningful connections with our customers. We are thankful for the expertise and knowledge he brought to our company and wish him continued success as he heads into retirement.”

Prior to joining the Verdesian team, Underwood worked for companies such as Ciba-Geigy, Helena Chemical, Inc., and Albaugh, Inc. He plans to stay busy with family, especially his grandchildren, as he heads into retirement.
