Dr. Rejane R De Moraes Joins the GBAL team as MD of Go-2-Market for North America
Dr. Rejane de Moraes brings over 20 years of experience in agriculture crop protection, where she has played a variety of technical and business roles.
Rejane holds a BS degree in Agronomy, a Masters in Crop Production, both from the Federal University of Pelotas in her native country of Brazil, and a Ph.D. in Entomology from the University of Florida. Rejane’s passion for sustainable agriculture has been a common thread through the years. She started her career as the technical manager for the end-to-end production of a microbial insecticide based on Baculovirus anticarsia, contributing to the use of this biological control agent in more than 1 million soybean hectares in Brazil in the early 90s. After her Ph.D., she joined a large crop protection R&D company where she managed teams, programs and global projects contributing to the discovery and commercialization of environmentally sound insecticides and fungicides.
Rejane is passionate about developing high-performing and cohesive teams and leading these teams to develop/improve processes to enhance organizational effectiveness. Her team leadership, Six Sigma and project management skills were essential to implement a state-of-the art chemical sample management facility with capacity to physically store and manage inventory for over 1.5 million samples; to develop and launch a global field trial management system where thousands of field protocols and field trial data were easily entered, stored and analyzed to aid scientists on making quality decisions regarding their pipeline product candidates. Recently, Rejane has served as a business development director for a global regulatory contract research organization (CRO) where she helped clients gain access to market, while increasing her knowledge of the US regulatory framework for conventional and biopesticides, as well as fertilizers and bioag nutritionals.
“I am very excited to join the Global BioAg Linkages family,” Rejane said. “Because my core values and GBAL’s core values are totally aligned around the belief that helping innovative bioag companies succeed in the marketplace, will help growers succeed in growing high-quality/high-yield crops in a more sustainable way. The better we get at this process, the higher our chances of living abundant and healthy lives on this planet in the long run will be!”
“With the tremendous growth and success of the GBAL network and clients across the globe, it was evident that we needed a highly skilled PMP (project management professional) proficient leader to ensure that we were able to deliver on our promises to valued partners, clients, and the industry at large," said Roger Tripathi, CEO and Founder of GBAL. "Rejane, with her 18-20 years successful track record with Dupont, Knoell, etc., plus her passion for sustainability and leading from the front attitude, will be the backbone to the dynamic GBAL business, and a well needed support to me." We are so excited!! Welcome Rejane!
