Dow AgroSciences president and CEO Timothy Hassinger has been appointed to the same roles at agricultural equipment firm Linsday Corporation (Lindsay, Nebraska), effective 16 October. Hassinger will succeed Rick Parod, who is retiring later this year after 17 years.

Hassinger has held various senior leadership positions throughout his 33 years at Dow AgroSciences. Prior to becoming President and CEO of Dow AgroSciences in 2014, he served as the company’s global commercial leader and vice president for the crop protection global business unit. Hassinger also previously served as vice president of the company’s Europe, Latin America, and Pacific regions.

Dow’s merger with DuPont is expected to close in late August. Dow announced on 11 July that it had agreed to sell a portion of its hybrid corn seed business in Brazil to CITIC Agri Fund to secure Brazilian antitrust approval for the pending merger. Assets in the sale include a copy of Dow AgroSciences’ Brazilian corn germplasm bank.
